Mastery of Design: The Bailey, Banks and Biddle Aquamarine Ring, 1930

Today’s shiny thing is a lovely ring set with a domed, rectangular aquamarine which is framed with baguette-cut diamonds and with diamond-set arches at each end. The shoulders of the ring are decorated with a triangular ruby and diamonds.

This is the work of Bailey, one of America's oldest jewelers. Originally, the firm was called Bailey & Kitchen when it was founded in Philadelphia in 1832.
