We’re in love with this beautiful old cut diamond and onyx cluster ring.
A statement piece in our ‘resurrection collection’ this gorgeous and unique Art Deco ring brings together the perfect contrast of black onyx and white diamonds. A ring of reflection, renewal and restoration, uniting the past with the present and all the unrealized potential of the future.
Onyx has long been used in jewellery to give a deeper tone to the appeal of the jewellery. A rise in black diamonds is fulfilling this avenue also, as a way to signify the beauty of the white diamonds by contrasting them with their opposite. Black further signifies the subconscious part of life, or the movement beyond life into the unknown beyond which is why black enamel was often used for mourning pieces – particularly common during the Georgian and Victorian era’s, and later onyx was commonly used in place of the enamel, particularly during the Art Deco period. An era which receives much acclaim for designs styled with symmetry, elegance, innovation and attention to detail.
