Vintage 1940s Retro 14K multi-diamond dress ring

A Retro-Era 14K white gold ring with a curvaceous, oblique design and a collection of modest yet chipper diamonds. Retro jewelry design began to emerge in the late 1930s as the rigid, geometric lines of Art Deco began to soften into more curvaceous forms with scrolls and volutes. With the onset of World War II in the 1940s, precious metals became scarce and most fine jewelry was produced in 14K gold. Jewelry design of this era became more focused on metalwork, since gemstones were often limited in size and availability during the war. This ring has a voluptuous body accented with single cut diamonds and milgrain details. The center diamond is centered in a square head with boxy, corner prongs. If you look close, you can see four tiny single cut diamonds below this diamond and between the prongs! Ten further accent diamonds fan out and around the setting. 

Measurements: Size 7 US American, total weight 4.2 grams.
