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!
