Retro-rific Wonder: Diamond Buckle Ring
The style of jewelry from the early and mid 1940s was of course affected by the economics as a consequence of World War II. With colored gold back in fashion, bands of woven gold and tank track-like configuration were incorporated into rings and bracelets taking on a somewhat “military look”. Here is an example of an 18k rose gold flexible link ring with 18k white gold accents. Akin to the buckle motif of the later decades of the 1800s, this retro era ring sports the look of the treads used on WWII tanks.
With a diamond-encrusted gold keeper and as well as a “belt” tip of a crescent shape and four diamond dangles all in 18 white gold, an array of brilliant and single cut diamonds with a total estimated diamond weight of .15 carats “glam” up the simple yet intricate texture of the ring. The end is designed to hang and dazzle the eye with the swaying of the diamond drops. Four adjustments for the tongue enable ease of wear.
Measurements: 3/8 of an inch (0.9 cm) in length north to south on the hand. Total length when opened including diamonds is 3-3/8 inches (8.5 cm). Weight of 11.1 grams (7.2 dwt).
Ring Size: Adjustable ring can fit a US size 4, 5, 6-1/2, 9-3/4 perfectly (UK H-T; Int. Dia. 15-21; Euro 47-61.5 mm; Japan 7-20).
Condition: Very good; light overall wear; one diamond possibly replaced; one bezel with a tiny dent visible only with magnification.
Date: Circa 1945.
Note: Diamonds have not been removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting. All diamond weights have been approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights.
