Retro Aquamarine, Diamond, Ruby and Platinum Ring

A Retro platinum ring with aquamarine, diamonds, and rubies. The ring has a rectangular-cut aquamarine with an approximate weight of 16.10 carats, 8 baguette diamonds with an approximate total weight of .80 carat, 28 round diamonds with an approximate total weight of .80 carat, and 8 calibre rubies with an approximate total weight of .44 carat. The jewelry historian Neil Letson coined the term "Retro" to describe the bold and vibrant jewelry of the period that ran from the late 1930s through 1950, which diverged in style from the earlier Art Deco period of the 1920's and 30's. The jewelry of the period is characterized by the bold, oversized and three dimensional use of precious metals. Retro jewels often feature massive, emerald-cut aquamarines, citrines and amethyst, accented with smaller rubies, sapphires and diamonds. Retro bracelets, watches and necklaces reflected the glamour and enchantment that Hollywood inspired during times of crisis. The movies provided a wartime escape into a world of fantasy and romance that was "larger than life". Ring size 7-1/4; this ring can be sized.

The necklace has 16 faceted oval cut amethyst stones with a slight graduation in size, prong set in granulated gold collets, with an approximate total weight of 350 carats. A Rivière is a necklace that is comprised of gemstones of the same species that are all the same size and shape or graduate smoothly in size. Historically, the gemstones were set in separate collets and later in prong or claw mountings. The style was first popular in the late 17th century and gave the effect of a continuous, shinning stream around the neck.
