Antique Art Deco 1920s 14K simulated emerald and seed pearl cocktail ring
A spectacular Art Deco cocktail ring with many elements of design and a trim of seed pearls. The center green glass - or "simulated emerald," as this probably was marketed - is set in an openwork 14K white gold ring with flowers, bow motifs on the shoulders, and a seed pearl surround. It was made by Belais, a company founded by David Belais around 1918 in New York City. Belais was known for being an early pioneer in manufacturing white gold in America. White gold was a good alternative to platinum which was needed for World War I and II.
Note: The ‘LAF’ in the stamp is short for Lafayette, the street Belais was located in NYC!
Measurements: Size 5 3/4 US, 3.5 grams
Era: Art Deco, 1930s
