It is Art Deco
by: Fox

Hi there,
Your ring would be called Art Deco (1920s to 1930s). If it were made earlier than 1920, between 1890ish to 1910 it would be called Art Nouveau.

I would google the details of the hallmark (example: crown with a W antique ring hallmark or trademark). You should get a few pages to sift through until you find the exact match. I would start with British hallmarks as they commonly used a crown.

Unless the ring is engraved with a name (such as the name of the designer or duchess) or a serial number (which was not common during the time it was made) or a newspaper of the duchess wearing the ring or documentation, there really is no way to determine whether or not a duchess actually owned it. You never know when it comes to hearsay, especially from a seller.

Hope this helps!
