History of 'Bague de firmament' jewelry:

In year 1775, the expert London enameler, Jusen, perfected a distinctly English style of enameling on jewelry, which was a smooth, dark, translucent midnight blue.

It is believed that the profusion of items in this remarkable color began as gifts given by royals by other royals, and indeed, this color is often seen as a background of the rings, brooches and watches displaying royal ciphers and crowns.

Like many other trends “anglomanie” was caught on, especially in France, where rings made of mug night blue enamel were and a scattering if diamonds were called “bagues de firmament” - “rings of the sky”.
