You wouldn’t think a simple gold band could capture the Retro moment in design history, but this one somehow does. Maybe it’s the slightly bolder dome of the cross section, or the whisper of a ledge on each side, or just the lushness of the color of the gold, but when we spotted the original engraving from 1942 inside, none of us were surprised. 14k yellow gold, 2.75mm wide, currently for a finger size 5.5
A striking statement of a ring, with a full circle of tiny step cut rubies forming a smooth line of bright color. The rubies are synthetic, and were called “scientific” rubies at the time. Such stones were extremely popular at the time, possessing all the durability of natural stones, with more consistent color. Polished white gold rails hold the stones securely without distracting at all from the juicy, glittering, uninterrupted red. 14k white gold, 2.5mm wide, finger size 5.5, ca.1940. (Sorry, this ring can not be sized)
Bright pinwheels of engraving twirl around the ring, punctuated with 4 pairs of glittering diamonds spaced evenly throughout.

Platinum with .12cts total diamonds. 3mm wide, finger size 6.50
Seven crisp shield shapes are each set with a tiny, bright, glittering diamond.

This unusual warm yellow gold band features a few charming touches. Most notable is the double wrap of engraved, white gold “ribbon” adorning the front. But it also was built in an unusual shape, as a sort of panel top, wider and slightly higher in the front. The smooth area between the ribbons would be a nice spot to set a few gemstones, or add a little bit of custom engraving, just sayin’. 14k bicolor gold, 4mm wide in front, finger size 4.50
If you want a smooth modern ring, but don’t want to sacrifice some curvy, pretty engraving, this is the band for you.

Made in house, so if you would like a variation in metal or band width, we would be happy to custom create one for you. 14k yellow gold, 2mm wide, finger size 6.5

A smooth panel top band with a bright little diamond for each day of the week.

Just enough rise off the finger, so it works well with lots of vintage engagement rings, but it also wears beautifully all on its own. Platinum with .14ctw. in diamonds. Finger size 6.25.
With a total weight of .80cts in glorious antique hand cut diamonds, this eternity ring really is just perfect. The stones are securely bead set, wrapping close to the finger all the way around.

Small square panels, each engraved with a single bloom, wrap all the way around the finger, but in each of the 7 squares at the top, a diamond raindrop glitters.

This example is especially flat to the finger, but still has gorgeous hand engraving on both sides. Platinum, 2.6mm, finger size 8.5.
Just a bright line of sizzle running all around the finger! Smooth platinum rails, silky polished sides, and .55cts of crisp, flashing diamond baguettes set edge to shining edge within.

In all our years in the antique jewelry business, we’ve never seen another ring quite like this.

Wonderful as an engagement ring and band in one. 14k white gold, ca.1940. *Thanks to fb friend Pamela for naming "Hail Caesar”

This lovely, substantial band features a layer of platinum worked to floral perfection over a base of warm 14k yellow gold.
