A hexagonal mounting frames the bright white center diamond.

The 1940s to 1950s jewelry styles became known as the Retro Modern Jewelry period. This style of jewelry is recognized by the use of two or more colors of gold, the frequent use of rubies mounted in rose gold, multiple layers, curved lines, cones and spirals.
