The custom of presenting a diamond ring as an engagement gift has been documented since the late Middle Ages. However, this hardest of all gemstones was a distinct treasure and almost the exclusive privilege of the nobility. It was only after the discovery of rich deposits in South Africa in the late 19th century that broader classes were able to afford diamond jewellery. The classic solitaire ring, i.e. a ring with only one diamond, is said to date back to a design by the famous jeweler Tiffany & Co. in 1886. To this day, this form of ring has remained the epitome of the engagement ring: In it bundles all the symbolism that can be expected from a piece of jewellery, which is based on a promise. Such a solitaire ring is the present piece of jewellery, which was forged on our order in Vienna. At its center, it presents a sparkling brilliant-cut diamond weighing approximately 0.38 carats. The band and setting of 18-karat white gold support the white brilliance of the diamond of the "Top Wesselton" colour grade. The precious stone is held securely by six claws. The ring's simple design makes it wearable every day without restriction. A romantic piece of jewellery that is just waiting for a beautiful moment to be given as a gift.

The symbolic act of giving a diamond ring as an engagement gift is first documented in 1477 and can be traced back to Mary of Burgundy, who received a diamond ring as a promise of fidelity from her future husband, Archduke Maximilian of Habsburg. Wearing a ring as a sign of commitment on the third finger of the left hand, on the other hand, was already the custom of the ancient Egyptians, who believed that the "love vein" connected the heart to the left ring finger.
