Men's rings with large gemstones were the status symbol of the man in the 1970s. Today, the eye-catching men's ring has become rather rare, yet a variety of unusual historical models have survived to this day. Especially opaque coloured stones such as onyx and lapis lazuli are the most commonly used gemstones in men's rings. The men's ring presented here is a typical representative of this jewellery genre and presents a rectangular tablet of lapis lazuli of homogeneous blue colour. The high-quality stone is held by a setting in the abstract style of the 1970s. Like the wide ring band, it is made of 14-karat yellow gold. The ring came to us from the Berlin art trade and is in very nice condition. An eye-catcher for gentlemen with style!

Mined since ancient times, especially in the rugged mountains of Afghanistan, lapis lazuli has always been prized for its intense blue color. In the Middle Ages, one of the most expensive pigments in art history, the so-called "ultramarine", was extracted from ground lapis lazuli. Painters such as Giotto and Michelangelo used it to create their incomparable masterpieces, whose blue still inspires with its luminosity centuries later.
