Description

This vintage 1950s Hollywood Regency retro 14k white gold ring features eight diamonds with a total weight of .43ct in a Toi et Moi bypass setting and would make a great unique alternative engagement ring, cocktail or statement ring. It is size 6.5 and sizable up or down.

There is so much sparkle in this standout 1950s ring, reminding me of the bold jewelry Lauren Bacall wore in Hollywood’s Golden Age when she was married to Humphrey Bogart. This Toi et Moi bypass style ring stars two superb round brilliant cut diamonds 3.6mm in diameter and about .17ct each, estimated to be H-I in color and VS2 in clarity. They are set in two square white gold illusion settings which are designed to make the gems look about 1/3 larger and magnify their brightness. These diamonds are set at a diagonal to create a sense of movement.

Above and below the central diamonds are gently curved accent bands holding six more diamonds set with harlequin style detailing and milgrain trim. Each measures 1.5mm in diameter and is single cut. Together they serve as a sparkling backdrop to the toi et moi gems. With the center stones, they give this ring a total diamond weight of about .43ct.

The Hollywood Regency era setting is 14k white gold and holds the gems in two tiers, a top prominent basket for the large gems and a lower tier for the accent gems. The band and setting are in wonderful condition and are shiny with a soft patina that comes with gentle use. The inside of the band is hallmarked 14k.

As with most Hollywood Regency rings, this one has a high profile with the top of the setting rising 7mm above the top of the finger. The face of the setting measures 11mm north to south and 11.5mm east to west. The band is 2.5mm wide at the shoulders tapering to 2mm wide in the back. The ring weighs a substantial 4.9 grams.

Currently size 6 1/2, this ring can be sized up or down. It can be resized to fit your finger by my personal jeweler for $45. Here is the listing to add to your cart when checking out:

If you need extra time to pay for a ring, contact me about my flexible layaway installment plan. Each ring comes in an antique style leather ring box. Priority shipping is included in the U.S. and Canada. Please contact me for DHL rates outside of North America.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept both Paypal and Etsy Direct Checkout payment methods and credit card transactions via Paypal and Etsy Direct Checkout. I also accept Etsy Gift Cards.

PAYPAL CREDIT
PayPal Credit is a great way to make a purchase with up to 6 months of interest free financing. It’s like my interest free layaway plan, except that you get your purchase right away without waiting! To see if you qualify and to find out what your credit line might be, call Paypal at 1-866-528-3733. Meanwhile, let me know what piece you are considering and I will reserve it for your for five days.

LAYAWAY POLICY
If you find a piece in my shop that you cannot pay for right away, I will work with you on a layaway payment plan that fits your needs. You can start the process with a 25% deposit and pay the balance over 3 to 6 months. There are no interest charges or fees for layaway, but if you change your mind after you begin the process, any payments made will be converted into a store credit. This is because I take the piece off the market once a deposit is made. You can always pay off the balance early with no penalty. As soon as you have paid for your item in full, it will be sent out within two business days. If you wish to return it, you will receive a store credit.

Please understand that we cannot hold items longer than six months under layaway. If the payment schedule is not completed within the agreed upon timeframe, your prior payments will become store credit, and the original item will be reposted for sale.

Additional policies

SIZING
I offer sizing services through my jeweler who has extensive experience sizing antique rings. Many jewelers do not have the expertise to match gold color and work with antique settings, so please consider using my sizing service. Rings are usually sized in about five working days.

INSURANCE APPRAISAL
My jeweler can provide you with an insurance appraisal if you need one for a fee of $50.

A NOTE ON ANTIQUE JEWELRY
Most of the gemstone rings in my shop are vintage or antique. As such, they do not easily fit the parameters of modern definitions of carat weight, clarity and cut.

For GIA appraisals, carat weight is determined by removing a stone from its setting and measuring it individually. With vintage jewelry this could compromise the integrity of the piece. I measure gemstones in their original settings and provide those measurements and an estimate of carat weight to give you with as much information as possible.

Clarity of a gemstone was of less concern a century ago, so many of these stones have tiny flaws and inclusions that are not visible to the eye without magnification. I do my best to disclose imperfections where present and will provide you the most accurate description possible. I examine each piece with a jeweler’s loupe, test gemstones for authenticity and also acid test gold to determine metal purity. Every piece that leaves my shop is something I would be proud to wear myself.
