How’s that for a beauty? That breathtaking art deco diamond and moonstone ring is circa 1915, and as the seller says, “the strong Art Deco shape and wonderful Greek key motif are bright with early 20th century style. It lights up your finger like the New York skyline at night, moon and all!”. Gorgeous! Another shot:
