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 carats, 28 round diamonds with an approximate total weight of .80 carats, and 8 calibre rubies with an approximate total weight of .44 carats. 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". Size: 7 1/4; can be sized.

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.

English Georgian Amethyst Rivière Necklace

An English Georgian 9 karat gold and silver rivière necklace with 28 cushion-cut foil backed amethysts that graduate in size and are chain linked. The amethysts are foiled and closed backed. (Safety chain added later.) The rivière is a short (usually 14-16 inches) necklace simply composed of a line of faceted gemstones or pastes, often graduating in size, and individually set. When the style first developed, in the late 17th or early 18th century, the settings were closed-back. Later versions had open settings so that the effect was a continuous, shining stream around the neck. Some ornate examples have additional gems dangling from the main necklace. Provenance: The Nancy and Gilbert Levine Collection, at The Toledo Museum of Art. The Levine Collecion comprised the Museum of Arts and Sciences travelling exhibition "A Century of Jewelry & Gems: 1785-1885" in 1995.
