Did You Know? 

  1. Immediately after the second world war with gold being severely rationed and platinum still being used for instruments, silver came into its own for the manufacture of rings. 
  2. This together with the accepted freedom to wear rings how and when one liked led many artistic jewellers to produce pieces that were very different and innovative.
  3. Ring design was, as always, affected by the current fashion developments such as the New Look launched by Christian Dior in 1947 that encouraged eye catching, ostentatious rings to be worn with the feminine clothes that were so craved after the end of the wartime austerity.
  4. Gemstones were now more readily available and the cocktail ring was born, set with large semi-precious stones with intense natural colors.
