Mastery of Design: The Nathan Fishberg Diamond Watch Ring, 1925

Watch Ring
The Victoria & Albert Museum

Platinum, diamonds…well, of course this jewel was made in the 1920’s. Even with its typical Deco styling, it’s still an unusual piece. This is both a watch and a ring, set with rose-cut and brilliant-cut diamonds surrounding the watch face.

Made in 1925 in London by Nathan Fishberg, this unusual ring satisfied the era’s desire for icy shimmer and unique objects. The ring is part of a suite of three rings by Fishberg which were designed to be worn either independently or at once.
