Retro jewellery of the 1950's often has large, bold designs that have the ability to stand out from near or far, all the while looking so elegant, as does this wonderful ring here.
Made in the 1950's in 14 carat white gold, the design alone is so attractive and being set with the diamonds certainly makes it sparkle so beautifully.
Set with one brilliant cut diamond that measures 0.38 carats, there are a further six that come together to total 0.30 carats, four single cut diamonds that total 0.12 carats, as well as three lovely marquise cut diamonds that add an extra 0.09 carats in weight. Not only do these diamonds sparkle so beautifully against the white gold, but the design as well will have this ring being admired each and every time that it is worn.
Measuring 13.2mm wide, this ring is as beautiful as it is bold in its design and will certainly get the attention that it deserves.

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 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.
