Moonstone Ring by Raymond Yard, 6.44 Carats
An impressive 6.44-carat oval moonstone is set in this classic cocktail ring by Raymond Yard. The gem displays the opalescence that makes this stone so beloved, exhibiting a lovely bluish-grey hue and exceptional play of color. When light falls through the thin layers of the jewel, it scatters across its surface in a phenomenon known as adularescence. The result is that this stone appears to glow from within, emitting a soft light like the moon. Set in platinum and encircled by diamond accents totaling 1.18 carats.Considered one of the great Art Deco jewelers, Raymond Yard was renowned for his designs that display high-quality gemstones in exquisitely crafted platinum settings. In an age of American enterprise, the iconic New York jeweler created one-of-a-kind jewels for famous clients, including the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Woolworths and DuPonts. Credited with elevating the Art Deco aesthetic to new heights, his classic designs are highly coveted by fine jewelry collectors. This ring is further distinguished through its provenance; the moonstone set into the ring was taken from a moonstone necklace that Raymond Yard created, and was then purchased by actor Douglas Fairbanks Jr.
