The first years of the young Federal Republic experienced a previously unseen increase in wealth and quality of life with the economic miracle. After the sorrows of the war years, the displays of the stores suddenly shone with a new luxury. Jewelry and watches served not least to visibly display the new joie de vivre to the outside world. The style of the jewellery of these years was often based on the late Art Deco, as it had been developed since the 1930s, and especially in the U.S. and France continued to determine the designs of the major goldsmith companies: rich furnishings, clear geometries and an exuberant sparkle of quality gemstones determined the image. This ring in a rich design of the 1950s presents a wonderful, gray-brown smoky quartz in a classic star cut weighing more than 12 carats. It is set in a strut-like gold setting of the economic miracle era, which delights with openings and skillful use of materials. The rich gold of the ring complements the mysterious sparkle of the gemstone to the best! An eye-catcher for ladies who like it lush.

Quartz is a mineral that occurs in many color varieties. Pure quartz, which is completely transparent and colorless, is called rock crystal. Due to embedded iron ions the quartz can show a violet coloration: Then it is called amethyst. But also the yellow to orange-brown colored citrine, the leek-green prasiolite as well as the brown-grey smoky quartz (morion) belong to the forms of quartz popular as gemstones. Nevertheless, only a few of the mined quartz can be used as gemstones. Because of microscopic inclusions of liquids and gases, quartz is often milky cloudy (milk quartz) and appears ingrown in the rock gray.
