Bakelite is a very robust type of plastic that was developed at the beginning of the 20th century. The new material was also used in jewellery design, especially in the Art Déco of the 1920s, because of its modernity and versatility. Today, pieces of jewellery with Bakelite are sought-after collectors' items.

A coral red bouton of bakelite sits centrally on the characteristically technical Art Deco setting.

The sides of the ring are each decorated with a band of two marcasites and a silver half ball.
