Three green emeralds framed by a frame of small diamonds are set in a sparkling row. They advantageously increase in their effect and shine enchantingly in their white and green light. In the language of jewels, the precious setting, in addition to its beauty, also has a symbolic meaning: thus, since the Middle Ages, the emerald, because of its fresh colour, stands for a beginning, young, hopeful "greening" love, while the diamond, as the most durable mineral on earth, symbolizes the duration of a union. Thus, the ring is wonderful as a gift to a person you have taken to your heart: A perfect love gift, and possibly even an engagement ring for a lady with a fondness for the colour green. The precious gemstones are presented by airy lobed settings in 14-karat white gold. The ring, which according to the hallmark was made in Italy, is beautifully preserved and dates to around 1980. The appealing piece of jewellery found its way to us from the foothills of the Weserbergland.

The name of the emerald probably comes from the Latin "Smaragdus", which in turn took this name from the Greek "Smaragdos". The emerald was first mined around 1300 BC in Egypt, which dominated the emerald trade in the Mediterranean region for a long time. Only with the conquest of South America by the Spaniards was their trading position broken, since there were also rich emerald deposits there. The emerald is one of the most valuable gemstones and has always had a very high value in many cultures, myths and royal houses. The ancient Egyptians recognized early the healing powers of emerald. But especially its effect on the eyes. Even Pliny the Elder wrote about it: "If the eyes are weakened, they are strengthened again by looking at the emerald. The gentle green of the stone drives away dullness". Nero is also said to have worn an emerald as a monocle to strengthen his eyes. Of Cleopatra it is said that she supported her beauty and youth by wearing emeralds. The emerald was already mentioned in the Bible and was considered in the revelation of John as the fourth of the twelve foundation stones of the Jerusalem city wall.
