The 1940s gave way to jewellery that incorporated larger and more colourful stones. These pieces were being made at a time when the Great Depression was ending and a new World War loomed. Bright and cheerful jewellery was created to contrast the mood and morale of tougher times. This sapphire and diamond half hoop ring would have been popularly worn alongside a woman's engagement ring as a "keep-sake". Today it can be worn in a multitude of ways - as an engagement ring, wedding band, dress ring, keep-sake or just because. This setting is all handmade.
During the 40s, women’s clothing became more masculine with structured shoulders and nipped waists, so their jewellery became more feminine. Large brooches set with colourful jewels made their way into the spotlight and larger, more layered necklaces adorned the necks of most women who frequented lavish soirees. Larger rings with more angular cut stones were also popular and often incorporated the stepped shoulder design used during the Art Deco period that preceded it.
