In the exuberant days after the end of WWII, jewelry got big. Really big. Wide, heavy gold bracelets mimicked the tracks made by War tanks and rings flashed with large, sparkling gems. This Retro ring is a perfect example of that oversized glory. Set with a giant citrine gem in that deep, aged whiskey and firelight color that ones sees so rarely, this ring is all cocktail, all the time.
The star of this show is the large, rectangular step cut citrine at its center, which measures 18.4x14.5x10.7 mm and weighs approximately 18.91 carats. The stone is held in a mount with a somewhat mechanical feel, typical of the post-war era. The face of this ring measures 18.4 mm north to south and 19.6 mm across at the shoulders, and it sits 11.6 mm off the finger. The ring is unmarked but has been acid tested as 18 karat gold. This size 7 ring weighs 10.2 grams.
