Vintage Retro Aquamarine Cocktail Ring, French Marks

5 o’clock cocktails, high heels, tight dresses, big hair, cigarettes, that’s the era that this fantastic cocktail ring was born into. It screams for gold lamé and a fresh manicure. Big was the fashion of the day and 1950s jewelry was bold and flashy and demanded attention, and this beautiful aqua ring is certainly no exception. 

Hand crafted in 18 karat gold, this fabulous ring has a play on the Neoclassical with its columnar feel and scrolling mount. It is set with a huge aquamarine stone in the very lightest shade of blue which weighs about 20 carats (22.2x17.5x9.6mm). The ring is marked on the back with several French hallmarks, it has the import mark of the owl with a 75 on it’s chest this means it has been assayed as 750 or 18k gold, it also has two other marks, but they are too rubbed to make out. This wonderfully weighty ring is a size 7.25 US and could be resized to suit, it weighs 17.7 grams. The ring measures 23 mm north to south and 18 mm across, it is 13 mm high and narrows to 4.4 mm at the back of the band. I bought this beauty in Paris, and while it's a bit hard to date, I suspect it was made in Europe around 1950. 

This ring would go perfectly with a martini, but it would play nice with ice tea as well, wearable from blue-jeans to ballgowns!
