Late Summer

Retro Style Cocktail Ring with Citrine & Diamonds in Gold, 1930s

The citrine, agate, jasper, amethyst and onyx - for the chemist, all these gemstones are quite uniform quartz. However, they are clearly distinguished by their color. The color spectrum of the citrine begins with the most delicate champagne tones, shows up now and then honey-colored and extends to an amber tone like sweet Madeira wine. The citrine in this ring has a wonderfully warm, orange-brown color with a slight zoning of color that identifies it as a natural stone. It is set in a ring that displays the expressive, sculptural design language of advanced Art Deco, also called "Retro Style". Delicately worked leaf ornaments in yellow gold form the detailed setting of the citrine, which is accompanied by two small diamond roses. It is so finely crafted that the ring does not appear clunky for all its presence. The hallmarks in the ring suggest that it was made in Germany. Its first owner may have worn it on quiet summer afternoons in her country house, perhaps sitting in the rose garden, warmed by the sun: the piece of jewellery still conveys this calm, secure mood today.
