Ask a question

Aquamarine and diamond cocktail rings capture the mood of post-World War Two affluence and leisure.

This beauty from about 1950 features a rich blue stone of just over 10 carats.

Rolled shoulders step down four levels, balancing the rectangular centre with their bold and rounded geometry.

Four old cut diamonds sit on either side of the aquamarine, adding just the right amount of sparkle to create a classic look.
