Superb Aquamarine Ring in 9k
At the start of the 1940s, the jewelry arts were interrupted by the onset of World War II. As a result of gold not being so easily attainable at this time, gold was manipulated in various ways; woven, braided, coiled, etc. Various textures were juxtaposed within a design and, thus, gold became the quintessential jewelry metal of the 1940s and 50s.
Gemstones such as diamonds, rubies, aquamarines, and sapphires of any significant carat weight were scarce, so we are lucky to have this treasure in our possession. This example features a stunning aquamarine stone, known to symbolize tranquility and harmony, in a hefty 9k pink gold setting.
