Marcus & Co. Art Nouveau 18kt Gold, Peridot, Diamond, Enamel Ring

This distinctive ring epitomizes Marcus & Co.''s liberal interpretation of Renaissance jewelry forms, fluidly merged with the Art Nouveau aesthetic of which the firm, along with Tiffany, was a leading American proponent. The flowing gold form, masterfully textured with Marcus''s unmistakable style of chasing and engraving, is enhanced with vibrant green enamel over a prepared ground that offers subtle shading and depth of color. Twinstone rings were first popularized in the late 18th century, when a young Napoleon presented Josephine with a so-called "toi et moi" engagement ring, the first of many historic jewelry gifts from the future emperor to the stylish widow he passionately loved. The ring is enhanced by two round-cut peridots totaling approximately 1.60 carats, and 30 round-cut diamonds that weigh approximately 1.20 carats. The green basse-taille enamel continues around the shank, which is enhanced at the reverse by a diamond. The multi-generational New York firm of Marcus & Co was founded by an ambitious young German immigrant who had trained with a prominent court jeweler in Dresden. In 1892, after working with Charles Lewis Tiffany, Hermann Marcus and his sons William and George together set up a business that soon became a glittering New York society institution renowned not only for its superb diamonds, colored stones and pearls, but also its instantly recognizabl ... e, original design style. The firm produced great jewels in the Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts sensibility, with George, the artist/designer, drawing inspiration from sources as diverse as the contemporary French masters, the Moghuls and Maharajahs, the garland style of the Ancien Regime, and the genius of Renaissance goldsmiths. George''s distinctive, confident hand was always discernible in Marcus creations. Working as a team with George, William was a gem and pearl connoisseur who travelled the world hunting for exceptional gem material, including purchasing the entire production of never-before-seen black opal from Lightning Ridge Australia in 1908. Marcus exhibited at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris, and their work won prizes from the prestigious Society of Arts & Crafts of Boston. Plique-à-jour enamel was an art in which the firm excelled. Displaying a mastery equal to that of the French artists, they created jewels with unprecedented three-dimensional depth in this medium. The firm and family were well-known for their charitable activities and promotion of young jewelers such as Raymond Yard. The firm''s jewelry is a focus of the collection of the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
