Belais Manufacturing Co. & the Art Deco White Gold .65ct. Diamond Belais Antique Engagement Ring

by gesner12 on September 18, 2018

Founded in 1863, David Belais of the Belais Brothers created a new formula for the alternative to platinum. Platinum was a rare and expensive metal before it ultimately became banned from use because of the war effort. The white gold formula, after years of experimentation, was submitted to the patent office in October of 1918.  The new alloy combination became so popular it was called “Belais metal” or 18K Belais. Considered one of the first manufacturers to use the white gold metal formula, Belais created magnificent, detailed rings, brooches and pendants during the Art Deco Era.  Always a unique find, look for the Belais hallmark in the shank of a ring.

 

Here is a perfect example of a stunning diamond Belais antique engagement ring crafted in Belais 18K white gold.  It features a .65ct. Apx. European Cut diamond with fabulous VS2 clarity and G color.  Notice the detailed filigree, engraving and hallmark, 18K Belais, in the shank of the ring.  Really beautiful!
