Diamond Dinner Rings & French Provincial Furniture at Crescent City Auction GalleryMar 14, 2021 11:00 EDT
During the era of Prohibition in the United States, many people met for secret alcohol parties held in private. These “cocktail parties” paved the way for dinner parties after Prohibition was lifted. Subsequently, cocktail rings came to be known as “dinner rings.” The upcoming Crescent City Auction Gallery sale features several dinner rings made of 18-karat white gold and platinum. One of the highlights is a ring with a 5.03-carat round diamond centerpiece. Small round diamonds and baguette diamond lugs surround the main stone. Made of platinum, another dinner ring has a statement round diamond with baguette diamonds adorning the swirled borders. Diamond accents, weighing 2.67 carats, lace the split shoulders of the band. Other available dinner rings feature green and pink diamonds.
The sale also offers antique French Provincial furniture. Carved in walnut, a Louis XIII-style sideboard from the early 20th century has a rounded edge corner top. It includes two frieze drawers and double arched panel cupboard doors. The piece stands on cabriole legs with a serpentine skirt detail.
