Description

Macklowe Gallery

This alluring ring presents a large, richly colored sapphire within an organic setting that enhances the gemstone with Marcus & Co.’s distinctive Art Nouveau spirit. The cushion-shaped stone lightly nestles within a bed of stylized leaves, subtly held in place by integral scrolling tendrils and tight little buds. The gold is chased and engraved throughout to impart a visually complex surface and vital feel. Embedded diamonds bring brilliance and sparkle to the living structure, while touches of blue enamel help unify the overall composition.
