Throughout the 1930's Laykin et Cie produced a variety of ring designs in platinum and diamond which relied on structural and architectural influences which expressed the minimalist movement, the Art Modern and Deco ethos and other emerging and experimental design themes which were having an impact on everything from product and graphic design to fashion and the fine arts.
This platinum and diamond ladies ring is bold in it's expression and combines both the rigid structural massifs surrounding the channel set hand-cut diamond baguettes with the slight bow flourishes on it's sides and shoulders set in pave diamonds. Not for the dainty. This ring strikes hard and is raised in world of black and white film; top hats and Mies van der Rohe.

This fabulous Laykin et Cie ring is named for the Roman Senator Nonius who owned the most beautiful "hazelnut sized" opal in the Roman Empire. After, refusing to sell the opal at any price to Marc Anthony so that he may present it to Cleopatra, Nonius was banished from Rome and lost all of his possessions except for one. The magnificent opal ring which he refused to relinquish. Such is the captivating nature of this multi colored and transfixing stone which in this example has been surrounded by a tempest of diamond waves buffeting on every side. But at the same time; the opal remains unmoved and steadfast. Intractable as Nonius. This Laykin et Cie ring is set in platinum and features an important black opal from the Lightning Ridge mine of Australia and was originally conceived in 1941. Our workshop has faithfully reproduced this design using top quality diamonds weighing over 7 carats.
In addition to the images of the Nonius is an image of the original Laykin et Cie color sketch of this lovely ring from 1941 featuring a cabochon emerald.
