Art Deco Retro Diamond Dome Ring Cocktail Ring Platinum
There was an exuberance after the end of WWII, the economy expanded rapidly as the war effort turned domestic, instead of bombs, Americans made refrigerators and dishwashers, things that felt futuristic and new. Fascism was defeated and the future looked bright and rosy. Jewelry also took a turn for the exuberant, there wasn’t much made during the war but jewelers came back in a big way with chunky gold and flashing bright diamonds. This ring is a child of that era and doesn’t skimp on style, substance or sparkle.
This fantastic late Art Deco/ early Retro ring was hand crafted in Europe in about 1940 of platinum; it is set with 14 Old European cut diamonds and 9 rose cut diamonds, which add up to about 2.25 carats in total weight.

This ring is not marked but tests as platinum, it is a size 9 and weighs 5.6 grams.
