A Rene BOIVIN late art deco ring with a canary diamond

A fine jewel of the late Art Deco period signed by Rene Boivin, and dated in1936. The ring features an emerald cut canary diamond which was rarely used at the time in high jewellery.  The geometrical design is characteristic of the abstract trend in Art Deco, inspired by the new art movements that were developed in the first half of the twentieth century. The ring combines diamonds in three different cuts which a typical feature of Art deco as well. 

I found this ring at Symbolic & Chase, London
