"Tradition is the passing on of fire and not the worship of ashes," Gustav Mahler is said to have once said. This ring is a fine example of that. For it presents a red garnet, as we know it mainly from jewellery of the 19th century, from the stars and flower brooches of the Wilhelminian period - in the cool and modern design language of Art Deco! The focus on a single, deep red gemstone looks simple and elegant. The ring face, placed across the finger, also presents three diamonds on each side, which together weigh about 0.68 ct. The diamonds are formed in the cushion-shaped old cut, the so-called Old Mine Cut, and at the time of the ring's creation they probably already came from old stocks or from an older heirloom - because this cut was only used until the late 19th century. Thus, the old diamonds add another historical dimension to the ring. Typical of the period, the ring is crafted in a combination of platinum and white gold. The luminous white platinum with a frame of millegrain highlights the color of the diamonds and garnets. The ring band is made of high karat yellow gold.
