18ct citrine ring from the Retro era of the 1940's

Gorgeous during the day, and stunning at night, this 18ct citrine ring from the Retro era of the 1940's will always stand out and be admired.

Retro jewellery came in after the Art Deco period and moved away from fine, intricate detail to bold, solid designs. Often set with just one gemstone as the feature of the ring such as here, in this ring is a 5.90 carat citrine that looks even better set into the warm colour of the 18ct gold.

With a gorgeous twist border design around the setting, even the work from under the ring is just astonishing and shows how much time and effort went into hand making this ring.

Measuring 14.8mm across by 18mm, this ring although large, sits and feels so comfortable to on the finger and can easily be worn all day and well into the night.

18ct citrine ring from the Retro era of the 1940's

A brief history on Retro jewellery.

Retro describes jewellery produced between the later part of the 1930’s to the 1940’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.
