Set in a platinum mount, the exceptional design of this Art Deco ring features five perfectly-matched, finely beveled Colombian emeralds of a hue which is typical of the best Colombian mines. Each gemstone displays very good transparency and likely were cut from the same emerald crystal. The emeralds are supported at each end by a pavé-set diamond demi-lune panel, and are flanked by classic diamond-set buckle shoulders.
It is accompanied by a report from AGL stating that the emeralds are Colombian, Insignificant Enhancement, Traditional Oil.
The ring is stamped with the maker's mark for Marcel Lévy, a boutique French jewelry workshop active in Paris in the first quarter of the 20th century. Given the quality of the ring's manufacture and the use of multiple matching emeralds of a rare cut, we believe the ring was made by one of the important French jewelry houses of the Early 20th Century. In our opinion, therefore, the ring was likely only re-sized by the Lévy workshop and subsequently stamped with their workshop mark.
