Composed of 10k yellow gold, the ring features a gorgeous Rose de France amethyst and stunning rubies. The use of multiple beautiful and precious stones 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 large and beautiful 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 the ring is a stunning 1.94 carat Rose de France amethyst, which is light purple in hue and semi-translucent, allowing light to filter through the body of the stone and illuminate the purple hue this variety of amethyst is so prized for. A fancy oval cut gives this stone facets which reflect light with eye-catching sparkle and shimmer, making it ideal for Hollywood Regency jewelry. To keep the stone secure, it rests in a 10k yellow gold prong setting, the vibrancy of the gold contrasting beautifully against the rich hue of the amethyst. To either side of the gorgeous Rose de France amethyst stone are round faceted cut ruby stones. These stones are a semi-translucent pink-red hue, and measure in at a cumulative 0.10 carats. These rubies are held in place using 10k yellow gold prong settings, and every portion of this lovely ring serves to bring out the best in the other. This gorgeous ring is composed of 10k yellow gold and was made in a geometric, starburst motif. The shoulders of the ring, which support the rubies, are pointed like the rays of stars, and are scroll-like in appearance, adding a regal touch to this gorgeous item. The scroll-like appearance of this ring can be best seen in the sixth photo provided as part of the description for this photo, while the starburst motif can be best seen in the second photo provided as part of the description for this ring. To allow the focus to remain on the stones, the band of the ring is smooth and polished for a comfortable fit when worn. A classic example of Hollywood Regency jewelry 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 is ever so slightly patinaed in the low relief areas of this item, which adds to the character of the ring, and highlights the high relief portions. The stone is ever so slightly loose in its setting, which was an intentional choice made by the artisan who crafted this item, as they did not want to damage the stone while setting 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. Amethysts are a semi-precious variety of quartz that are valued for their varying shades of translucent purple hues. Throughout antiquity, amethysts were used in religious and royal jewelry and were considered as valuable as rubies, emeralds, and even sapphires. Rose de France is a special variety of amethyst. The color has a distinctive light purple, or lilac hue with lovely pink undertones. This variation is hard to find and highly sought after. Traditionally, the term 'Rose de France' referred to the style or design with pale purple amethyst stones, which were usually engraved with a crest or monogram. Over time the unique color of this variety of amethyst became associated with the term 'Rose de France' and it is now referred to that way. 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.
