A stunning 18ct yellow gold and platinum cabochon blue sapphire, diamond, and emerald cocktail ring from the Retro period. With platinum reserved for wartime use, jewellery from this period embraced the warm tones of yellow and rose gold. At its centre, a majestic and tactile 10.46ct sapphire catches the eye with its domed polished candy like form and rich blue colour. Secured by four prominent yellow gold claws, the stone is surrounded by alternating vibrant green emeralds and sparkling colourless diamonds (3.20ct) that have been claw set into platinum. A slim 18ct yellow gold mount with split shoulder details completes this design. Ceylon (Sri Lanka) is famous for the beautiful cornflower blue sapphires that are found there. This sizeable example is particularly special, as it is certified to confirm its origin, and that the colour is natural and has not been enhanced by any heat treatment.
Unsigned, this piece was clearly influenced by the famed Dolce Vita jewels that were created by the House of Bvlgari in the 1960s. Attracting global attention in this decade, the House was truly innovative with its focus on colour combinations and bold statement pieces.
