The Retro period follows the Second World War which put an end to the Art Deco period. In the absence of stones and large fortunes ready to spend a lot, French jewelers launch collections rich in metal: yellow gold is in the spotlight. This is the appearance of the famous bracelets and rings tanks. These jewels are inspired by the chains of military tanks and often mix yellow and pink gold.
It is also the appearance of cocktail rings: big and high rings, with imposing stones but not very expensive at the time. Thus citrine, amethyst and smoky quartz have a nice place in the jewelry of the Retro period. Find the selection of Maison Mohs for the jewels of these years 40 to 60.
