Retro jewels characteristically have curves and scroll forms in gold, and are commonly set with rubies and aquamarine. This is a classic example of the Retro style.
Aquamarine: A medium light tone of blue, very good clarity, good cut, with minor abrasions on the surface. This is a fine quality aquamarine.
Rubies: Total estimated weight: 0.40 carat, of a medium tone of strong pinkish red colour. It is Dupuis' opinion that there is no evidence of heat treatment. Heat treatment is common for rubies, so unheated rubies are rare.
Good overall condition
