1950's retro citrine ring


Now here is a ring that certainly makes a statement on the ginger and will look great during the day and absolutely fabulous in the evening.

Dating from the 1950's, this wonderful ring was made in 18 carat gold and is set with a gorgeous natural citrine that measures 16.15 carats and has the most incredible golden-yellow colour to it that is accentuated perfectly by the gold setting.

Measuring 19mm by 15.3mm across, even under the ring is just as impressive to admire as is the citrine. With such an elegant design that supports the citrine, this setting quite literally elevates the ring to a whole new level.

This is a ring that will certainly capture the light as well as the eyes of all who see it, and is destined to always be admired.

When was 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.
