Art Deco Ruby Target Ring
Often imitated and rarely encountered in their original form, it's no wonder the Art Deco target ring is still one of the favourite styles to come from the era. The pop of colour combined with the sparkle of diamonds and geometric precision is eye-catching in every iteration.
The sweetest little old lady, this ring has been places and seen things. A fully original authentic Art Deco target ring, she is not in the best shape of her life, but at present is uniquely and utterly herself. Though not currently suitable for everyday wear, she IS wearable as is as long as care is taken. Her stones are all secure, with no loose parts or rattles, and her head and shank are both intact - she's a purist's dream (you can only be an original antique once!), and as a result we are offering her as is, with the option to restore her to her former glory.
To be reinforced and refreshed, we would rebuild and bolster the outer bezel that holds the calibré rubies (it's worn thin and patchy in some places), replace the central plate holding the rose cut diamonds (there's a small hole through it, though the stones are all in place), and touch up the connection points between the head and shank.
We know this glamorous beauty has a new home waiting for her - whether it's just as she is, or with a little sprucing up! Please reach out with any questions at all about this special piece.
