Polished and textured 18k rose gold and white gold, this vintage Retro bypass ring is an interesting twist on the retro period's characteristics. Having the period's rose gold feature, the terminals are wonderfully different yet their difference enjoys a perfect design balance. We love the white gold dots that give subtle dimension and interest to the textured background on which they are placed. The complementary section is so highly polished, one can almost use it as a mirror.
Reported to be from Belgium, the ring is size 6-61/4, on the mandrel used for sizing and it weighs 10.8 grams. It feels solid and substantial and is a comfortable fit. Assayed as 18k rose and white gold, it measures approximately 1" across the diagonal, from one end of the ball to the other.
Basic, but much too interesting to be considered ordinary, this ring is an easy and unusual design that "can take you anywhere."
