Decorative Art Retro/Fifties gold bangle
set with diamonds and sapphires

Country of origin: Belgium

Style: Something between Art Retro and Fifties (of the twentieth century)

Style specifics: Retro Style is a recent designation for the period in the forties when large scale, stylized geometric forms, drapes, bows or ribbons were all the rage. Pink Gold, set with colored stones, sometimes in floral forms was common. But this type of jewelry is also very specific for the fifties of the twenthieth century.

Period: ca. 1950

Theme: belt

Material: platinum and 18K yellow gold

Diamonds: 16 semi-modern brilliant cut diamonds with a total estimated weight of approx. 1.28 crt. Their cut is semi-modern as the stones are polished around 1950 which means that although to today's standards they are considered to be modern brilliant cuts, their cullet (the point at the bottom) are still polished flat. Three single brilliant cut diamonds (also called 8/8) with a total estimated weight of approx. 0.12 crt.
Note: All diamond weights, color grades and clarity are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.

Total diamond weight: approx. 1.40 crt.

Precious stones: 25 sapphires

Birthstones: Diamond is the birthstone (or month stone) for April and sapphire for September.

Hallmarks: "950pt" indicating a platinum alloy of 95%, 750 indicating 18K gold and the outer shape of the master mark is in the shape of a barrel and was taken in use in Belgium since 1952.

Condition: excellent condition

Dimensions: inner circumference 19.50 cm (7.68 inch)

Weight: 52.00 gram (33.44 dwt)
