The House of Sterlé produced some of the most charming and original jewelry from the 1930’s – 1960’s. Some of Sterlé’s most striking pieces were created during the 1950’s, when a wealth of new designs and imagery was sweeping the world of jewelry.
This vintage ring is a perfect example of Sterlé’s innovative design. Swirls of emeralds enclose swirls of diamonds, each swirl enclosed with gold twisted wire-work characteristic of 1950’s jewelry, and of Sterlé’s work in particular. A sumptuous tourmaline surmounts the ring, and the shank is half emerald – half diamonds for added interest. The swirls create a scalloped edge that gives femininity and movement to this most unusual and very chic ring.
