A clean modern design with a sparkly yet modest 0.20ct diamond, this ring would have been the perfect choice for a 1940s couple looking to start their lives together. While white gold and platinum would have still been the metals of choice in the 1920s and 1930s, their civilian use was limited during the war effort, so we see a return to two-tone rings, with minimal white gold used for the settings only and yellow gold for the bands. As well, this would be when we first start to see engagement rings and wedding bands expressly designed to be worn together - this ring would have had a matched band, and today we can see how easily it pairs with its straight sides meant to be worn alongside a mate.

Slim and low-profile, this is an easy ring to wear for a minimalist, no-fuss bride, and brings a touch of nostalgia with a style just like your grandmother might have worn. The centre diamond is moderately included, but the inclusions are primarily white rather than black, so the overall effect is still bright and sparkly.
