Gem of an Aquamarine Diamond Ring
The trend for very large rings from the post-war period continued well into the 1950s with a sudden re-emergence into the market of today. Big is beautiful and large rings have become a signature look for many women. These impressive pieces were often set with aquamarine or citrine and frequently studded with smaller accent stones of a more precious nature such as rubies and diamonds.
Perfectly illustrating that point is a fabulously massive emearld cut aquamarine of 11.43 carats claw set in a 14k white gold mounting. The ice blue stone has flashes and highlights of the most luxuriant deep blues complemented by six (6) glittering white brilliant cut diamonds with an estimated total diamond weight of .15 carats. Each of the .02 to .03 carat diamonds rests upon a white gold plinth engaged in a gentle embrace with the impressive aquamarine. The setting creates an architectural wonder with teardrop shaped openwork accenting the wide shank.
