Platinum diamond ring made in the Retro era of the 1950's


Retro jewellery often has lovely bold designs that are quite angular and look amazing on the finger, and here is a wonderful ring from the Retro period of the 1950's that looks spectacular on the finger.

Hand made entirely in platinum, the ring has such a wonderful angular design that looks amazing not only from the top, but also from the side. The design of the ring is just so beautiful to admire and characteristic of Retro jewellery of the time.

Then there are the diamonds and the way they are set into the ring. Not only are there two rows of European cut diamonds across the centre, and a row of single cut diamonds running the other direction at each end, but set between the European cut diamonds are four more single cut diamonds. The European cut diamonds total 1 carat in weight and the single cut diamonds total 0.24 carats, and with all of these diamonds capturing the light so well, this ring gives off a beautiful sparkle that will capture the eye no matter what time of the day that it is worn.

Measuring 19.5mm across by 10.6mm, this is such a fabulous ring from the Retro era that will always be loved and admired from near or far.

Platinum diamond ring made in the Retro era of the 1950's

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.
