Add to wishlist

With the prosperity that came after the war, consumers were ready for something new. “Atomic Age”, the period roughly corresponding to 1940–1963, inspired nearly every aspect of Mid-Century design, and jewelry was no exception.

The design is characterized by references and responses to the space race. A time of great promise of technological solutions for the problems facing an increasingly complex world.

The launch of Sputnik in October 1957 marks a clear point of reference.

This sweet diamond and emerald starburst cluster ring is beaming. The 20 diamonds, 0.65ct in total, are crispy white – G/H color and surrounding an deep green lush emerald of 0.75ct.

A stellar piece!
