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. Because in it bundles all the symbolism that can be expected from a piece of jewellery, which is based on a promise. This solitaire ring, which dates from around 1970, features a sparkling diamond weighing approximately 0.24 carats at its center, held in place by an airy platinum chaton. Together with the rail made of high-carat white gold, they optimally support the white brilliance of the diamond. The ring was created in the UK and came to us from London. It is 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.
