This ring is designed as a classic entourage ring, with ten diamonds surrounding a beautiful bright red ruby like the leaves of a precious flower. Such designs have been known for a long time in jewellery history and are called entourage rings, from French "entourage" for escort, entourage. Rings in which a larger center stone is surrounded by diamonds were first in vogue in the 1600s - and since then it has been impossible to imagine the world of jewellery without them. In the second half of the 20th century, they became particularly popular once again. Kate Middleton, for example, also wears a ring with a very similar design and a sapphire in the center, which Princess Diana chose as her engagement ring from the then court jeweller Garrard in 1981. The ring we have here is forged from yellow gold that has been rhodium plated bright white in the area of the gemstones. It came to us from Zurich and, according to the hallmark, was made in Germany, probably in the years around 1970. It comes with a detailed certificate from the German Society for Gemstone Appraisal Idar-Oberstein, which confirms the quality of the materials.

Ruby is the red variety of the mineral corundum. Corundum can be found in almost all colors of the rainbow, even completely colourless stones are among them. But while all these stones can also be addressed as sapphires, only the magnificently red stones of this mineral genus are rubies. Rubies have extraordinary significance in the world of jewellery. In the 19th century, its brilliant colour was often associated with love and passion: "Rubies are especially suitable for young lovers [...] In general, it is considered the emblem of the most passionate and ardent love" (Bazar. Illustrirte Damen-Zeitung, November 1886).
