Country of origin
Art Deco - Art Deco is an eclectic artistic and design style which had its origins in Paris in the first decades of the 20th century. The style originated in the 1920s and continued to be employed until after World War II. The term "art deco" first sawwide use after an exhibition in 1966, referring to the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes that was the culmination of high-end style modern in Paris. Led by the best designers in the decorative arts such asfashion, and interior design, Art Deco affected all areas of design throughout the 1920s and 1930s, including architecture and industrial design, as well as the visual arts such as painting, the graphic arts and film. At the time, this style was seen aselegant, glamorous, functional and modern.

Abstract motives and geometrical forms are quite typical for the Art Deco period. Art Deco moved away from the soft pastels and organic forms of its style predecessor, Art Nouveau, and embraced influences from many different styles and movements of the early 20th century, including Neoclassical, Constructivism, Cubism, Modernism,and Futurism. Its popularity peaked in Europe during the Roaring Twenties and continued strongly in the United States through the 1930s. Although many design movements have political or philosophical roots or intentions, Art Deco was purelydecorative.

Lady Di ring - Princess Diana's Engagement Ring - In the early 1980s, no single piece of jewellery represented a fairy tale romance more than Princess Dianaâ€™s engagement ring. The Princess of Wales had captured the publicâ€™s heart, and her exquisite taste in fine gems became an icon for the royal feeling every bride wants on her wedding day.
Prince Charles initially proposed without an engagement ring, insisting that Diana consider the implications of the role of his wife being a couple under constant camera barrage and the pressure to provide the next generationâ€™s heir before accepting. Diana, however, needed little encouragement, and after she accepted a selection of engagement rings was presented for her consideration by Garrard Jewellers. Diana choose an oval blue sapphire engagement ring that weighed in at an astounding 18 carats and was surrounded by 14 small diamonds in an elegant cluster setting.
Although this ring is "a tad" smaller than its royal compeer it has great allure and just waiting for its princess to wear.
Many years later, in 2010 to be precise, their son Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his mom's engagement ring.... (to be continued we guess).
