Vintage Retro Asscher Cut Diamond Engagement Ring 1950s

Rings from the Retro Era mark a transition between the scarcities of the war years and stepping into the future and out of an austere past. Geometric shapes and dramatic design highlight the typical aesthetic of this bold genre. This ring plays with symmetry and shape, it’s bold yet elegant. Jewelry was worn as a statement, encompassing glamour and modernity. It reflected mood and innovation. From 1935 through the 1950s was an exciting time for accessories. Inspiration stemmed out of the Art Deco period and infused with wartime ideas – such as the shape of tank treads or assembly lines.

This retro gold platinum diamond ring was handcrafted around 1950. It features a gorgeous old European rectangular Asscher cut diamond at the center with eight rose cut diamonds along the top and bottom. The diamonds are all set in platinum over 18 karat gold, and the sides have textured platinum accents. The center diamond measures 6.65 x 4.2 x 3.25 mm and weighs approximately .80 carats. The ring face measures 11.2 north to south and 12.6 mm across, it sits 6.3 mm off the finger and the band narrows to 3.8 mm at the back. This piece is a size 8.25 and it weighs 8.4 grams. It has no marks and has been acid tested.

Talk about a ring! This is one for the ages. It has that retro New-York-Mad-Men long cigarette in one hand and icy Manhattan in the other, kind of vibe. It’s masculine, strong, sparkling and oh so ‘everything I never knew I needed’.
