Retro era 18 carat rose, yellow and white gold signet ring

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.

Signet rings go as far back to ancient Egypt over 4,000 years ago, and use of the term “signet” or “seal”, is from the Latin “sigillum” (seal), diminutive of signum (sign) and dates back at least to the second half of the thirteenth century. This antique signet ring is set hand engraved on the sides.
