The tank ring, a jewel steeped in history

Tank jewelry first appeared in the 1940s, at the height of the Second World War. In part, they reflect the aesthetic codes of the Art Deco style, an anthological artistic movement whose watchwords were geometry, symmetry and harmony. Inspired by cubism, which encouraged the simplification of geometric forms, Art Deco further stimulated the imagination of creative minds at the time of the advent of tank jewelry. The tank ring is the result of a skilful blend of art and craftsmanship.

By its very appearance, the tank ring embodies concepts as abstract and valued in wartime as strength and power. In perfect harmony with the European and even Western architecture of the period, tank jewelry is characterized by its massive, imposing form. This explains the origin of their name, whose sounds confirm their military influence.

As an emblem of an era, the tank ring offers a fine insight into the work of jewelers in the 1940s and 1950s. Because it is no longer produced today, it enables modern consumers who own an original version to assert their uniqueness and personality with simplicity on a daily basis. Whatever your style, adopt the tank ring to accessorize all your or night.

How to recognize a tank ring?

With its singular silhouette, a tank ring is a jewel like no other. So it's also easy to identify contemporary jewels inspired by the characteristic tank design - iconic pieces that have undeniably left their mark on the history of jewelry.

Yellow, white or pink gold is the star of the tank ring. Each original model is crafted from an alloy of pure gold, copper and silver. Some models even mix different shades of gold, to delight all fans of this noble, timeless material.

A voluminous jewel par excellence, the tank ring takes the form of a wide band, with or without natural or synthetic stones. The context of creation of tank jewelry justifies the use of artificial stones, which is why most authentic tank rings sold today in vintage and/or second-hand versions are accompanied by rubies and synthetic diamonds.

In all cases, the tank ring stands out as a beautifully colored jewel, unlike the tank bracelet whose design is decidedly less fanciful. Take a look at our tank bracelets to complete your retro ensemble and mix sobriety and fantasy to great effect.
