Composed of 18k yellow gold, the ring features a huge Madeira citrine stone along with six rubies. The use of such a large stone in this ring is an excellent example of the Hollywood Regency style, which rose to popularity during the Retro period. Eager to show off their wealth and style, Hollywood celebrities and socialites during this time would adorn themselves with glamorous jewelry, usually featuring many beautiful and large stones. This ring was made in the style of Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, & Tiffany designs that were influencing the Hollywood Regency style, making the viewer think of the likes of Ava Gardner, and Katherine Hepburn. The focal point of this stunning ring is the huge Madeira citrine stone in the center of the face of the ring. This gorgeous stone features a step cut, which adds depth and dimension to the stone. This gorgeous stone is a semi-translucent deep yellow-orange hue, and measures in at an incredible 35.82 carats. Madeira citrine is named after a portuguese wine for its lovely hue, which adds to the value of this item. This gorgeous citrine stone is surrounded on either side of the face of the ring with rubies. The rubies are both round faceted cut as well as step cut. These rubies measure in at a cumulative 0.18 carats and are a lovely sem-translucent pink-red hue. Both the Madeira citrine stone as well as the rubies were specifically faceted to catch and reflect light as the ring moves, adding a glamorous sparkle to this gorgeous item. This gorgeous ring is composed of 18k yellow gold and is heavy in metal weight value. This gorgeous ring is regal in design, with ornate and scrolled shoulders. The stone raises to just over half of an inch off of the finger when this ring is worn, adding to the glamorous opulence of this item. The open under gallery and slightly tapered band give this ring a comfortable and secure fit when worn. The inside of the ring features a sizing bead, which was added at some point in its history. Due to this, the ring wears at around a size 5.25. However, this bead could be removed to allow the ring to wear slightly larger, and your local jeweler could easily resize this item. A stunning example of the Hollywood Regency style from the Retro period, this ring would make a valuable addition to any antique jewelry collection. Don't miss your chance to preserve this piece of cultural history. Damage: Age appropriate wear. This item has a sizing bead, which reduces the wearable size of the ring to around 5.25. This could be removed so that the ring could be worn slightly larger. The gold is ever so slightly patinaed in places, which adds a antique and lovely touch to the ring. *This listing is for the item only. All display boxes and/or photography props do not come with your purchase.* The History The Art Deco era is famous for being the "Gatsby" or "Roaring Twenties" era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. Jewelry from this period was most often crafted between 1920 and 1940. Art Deco jewelry sometimes featured white gold or platinum, geometric designs, European cut diamonds, filigree, and calibre cut stones that are specifically cut to fit the design of the piece. During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Retro jewelry refers to pieces created in the 1940s and 1950s. This was a period during which jewelry designers were largely influenced by the changes stemming from World War II. These designs reflect an infusion of futuristic vision with elements inspired by preceding periods, encompassing a variety of gemstones, shapes, and materials. Materials used commonly in Retro jewelry are gold, gold alloys, and silver as the wartime put a restriction on the use of platinum. Designs can be masculine, geometric and modern, or softer, more feminine and floral. The Hollywood Regency style came into fashion during the 1930s, ushered along by the Golden Age of Hollywood. This style was heralded by bright, contrasting colors and modernization of the opulence of Baroque styles, featuring a deliberately frivolous extravagance that screamed glitz and glamour. “Big girls need big diamonds” was taken to heart, and the gorgeous Hollywood stars decked themselves appropriately, with blindingly glittering jewels to showcase their lives of luxury. Citrine is a variety of quartz that features a golden yellow hue. While yellow is the most common color, it can also be seen with a greenish-yellow, brownish-yellow, or orange tint. One famous variety of citrine is Madeira citrine, which is named for the Madeira islands off the coast of Portugal. Citrine takes on a deep orange or reddish tint when heat treated. Madeira Citrine ranges from golden to golden-orange to reddish-brown to brown. During the Art Deco era, Madeira Citrine was extremely rare and highly sought after. This type of citrine gets its name from the Madeira wine made in this Portuguese island region, which is off the coast of Africa. It deeply resembles this beautiful wine's color. Rubies are one of the four precious gemstones and are prized for their pink to blood red colors. The most valued hue of ruby is called blood-red, or pigeon blood, for the bright, rich hue it exhibits. The color of a ruby comes from the element chromium. Rubies have adorned royal and religious jewelry for centuries and were especially esteemed in Asian countries like China and India, where they were thought to bring good fortune. Rubies are graded by color, clarity, cut, and carat. Rubies are often also evaluated based on their geographic origin. Domestic US: All items ship within one business day of receiving payment.
