Hanseatic understatement

Antique platinum ring with 1,00 ct old european cut diamond, 1920 ca.

"Even if the preferred gemstones change and celebrate their resurrection as the darling of the ladies only after years - the brilliant has never lost its position, evenly like its impeccably clear fire it outlasts all currents of fashion. Understandable, therefore, that so many desires secretly aim at rings with diamonds..." (From a jewellery brochure of the 1930s) The diamond solitaire is one of the most beautiful forms a ring can take. Focused on a single, large diamond, it presents us with sparkle. Usually set in a simple, narrow ring band, it does not interfere with everyday life, can be combined well with many other pieces of jewellery and is at the same time comfortable to wear. The ring here presents a sparkling old brilliant cut diamond in its center. The stone, weighing quite exactly one carat, is sparkling in a restrained platinum setting. Its color is white (H), and it has good clarity with only small inclusions. Its cut suggests that it was cut in the early 20th century. The solid platinum ring band has a delicate and understated design. Thus the piece of jewellery shines in elegant variations of the colour white. The ring came to us from Hamburg and has been beautifully preserved. A daily wearable classic!
