A design by Juliette Moutard called “trois plans étagés” as the name suggests - it is composed of three staggered layers: channel-set rubies, two lines of circular-cut diamonds and finally the platinum band. Little finger rings have seen a renaissance in recent years but it was the modern woman of the 1920s that made the otherwise traditionally male custom of wearing a ring on the pinkie so popular. Here, stylistic evolution has left the signet ring well behind but, the heavy platinum band and modern lines hint at its traditional inspiration.
