Ask a question

Retro jewellery appeared around the time of the Second World War and was commonly fashioned in rose or yellow gold.

Unusually the diamond ring featured here is handcrafted from 14-carat white gold, so it might appeal to you if you love Retro style but wear white gold or platinum jewellery.

The stark, contrasting geometry of round and flat elements, almost industrial or machine-like, is typical of the era.

This is quite a robust ring and it’s suitable for careful everyday use.
