Sweet jewelry...

Most elegant Art Deco engagement ring with diamonds and pain du sucre sapphire


This must be one of the most elegant rings we have ever had. It has the graceful finesse of the Edwardian style combined with the very geometrical forms of Art Deco. This mixture of styles is not surprising as both Edwardian and Art Deco are coevals.

The center is set with a high domed cabochon cut natural sapphire. Such sapphires are called "pain du sucre" which is French for sugar loaf. A sugar loaf, a tall gently-tapering cylinder with a conical top, was the traditional form in which refined sugar was exported from the Caribbean and eastern Brazil from the 17th to 19th centuries.

A sweet piece of jewelry indeed.
