18 carat rose gold and platinum diamond ring from the Retro era


The Retro era came in right after the Art Deco period of the 1920's to 1940's and had the main difference of going for larger, bolder designs as well as rose gold becoming more prevalent, and both of these features can be seen in this truly fabulous Retro period diamond ring.

Made in 18 carat rose gold and platinum, the warm colour of the rose gold looks so amazing contrasted against the platinum at the top as well as the diamonds.

The design of this ring is truly remarkable and looks amazing on the finger, and the sculptured design of this ring alone will make sure that it is always viewed and admired from every angle. The top section measures 14.4mm wide at its widest section and tapers down to 10mm wide, and across from one end to the other, this distance measures 19.8mm across. Tapering down to a sleek 5.6mm wide at the back, this ring is so surprisingly comfortable to wear, and no matter when or where it is worn, there is little doubt that it will always be admired.

In total there are a combination of a baguette cut diamond, a marquise cut diamond, twenty single cut diamonds and seven round early brilliant cut diamonds that all come together total a dazzling 1.66 carats.

This ring is truly amazing to view from all sides and angles, and complimented with the diamonds makes sure that this ring is one that is always destined to be loved, admired and cherished.

18 carat rose gold and platinum diamond ring from the Retro era

A brief history of Retro jewellery:

Retro describes jewellery produced between the later part of the 1930's to the 1950's, and also includes World War II. The styles and designs of the Art Deco jewellery still influenced designers in this era.

The retro movement was can be considered to be started by the head of Christie's jewellery department, Francois Curiel. He named the era for customers who requested jewellery with the Retro look. His realization of this era brought great popularity and prestige to retro jewellery, resulting in the increase in value and price to these designs. Retro jewellery can be easily characterised by large chunky somewhat over the top designs in not only brooches and bracelets but also rings. The use of rose gold was also quite common even in 18ct.
Large gem set brooches with a combination of such stones such as rubies and diamonds in a floral motif where not uncommon.
