Gemstones are not only for women, in fact in our history if was common for men to be equally bedecked. We are loving the simple and masculine design of this lavish signet style ring.

The Mid 20th Century Period (1950 - 1970):
The hair was bigger, the dresses were bigger and the jewellery followed suit. Women wore more extravagant pieces than ever before and men opted for lots of gold. Cartier introduced jewellery depicting leopards and panthers and from then on each jewellery house did the same. Van Cleef & Arpels created bejewelled animals and flowers and Bulgari had its Serpentini line. Cocktail Rings were something a woman could simply not be seen without particularly in the US where a ‘Cocktail Party’ was the most stylish event you could be invited to.
