retro diamond, ruby, sapphire 14k gold and platinum ring


The Story

Red, white, and blue never looked as good as it does on this awesome retro ring!

From circa 1930s-early 1940s, this 14 karat yellow gold and platinum ring is sculptural and chunky in design to deliver a big look!  It features 4 square cut rubies, 5 diamonds (a mix of Old European cut and transitional cut diamonds) and 4 square cut synthetic sapphires set side by side in a row and staggered vertically. 

It looks amazing worn solo as pinky ring, definitely holding its own, but you know us, we love to see rings stacked sky high!

*About synthetic sapphires: synthetic sapphires are sapphires that are made in a laboratory and share all of the same chemical, optical, and physical properties of natural sapphires. The main difference between the two being that natural sapphires are organically found in nature and synthetic ones are human-made. Since first being patented in 1911, synthetic sapphires in jewelry became common practice starting in the Art Deco era and are still often used in jewelry made today. A synthetic gemstone is not the same as an imitation stone, which can be any synthetic material used to imitate a more valuable stone.  Imitation stones are merely meant to appear like a gemstone. They can consist of anything from glass, to plastic, to doublets (aka “posers” ). Synthetics gemstones hold the same properties of its natural counterpart with the exception of being man-made instead of naturally formed.
