The 1960s saw the emergence of a new form of the classic entourage ring, that is, the ring shape in which a large central stone is framed by a wreath of diamonds. These new rings were called ballerina rings, because the surrounding diamonds were no longer just brilliant-cut diamonds, but fine rods reminiscent of the folds of a fanned-out tutu seen from above: just as if one were looking out of an opera box at the ballerinas that Degas was so fond of painting, for example in the 1878 painting L'Étoile. We have such a ring here as well. On an airy under-cadence of white platinum bars sits a halo of diamonds. The gemstones have a total weight of just under two carats and are alternately trapezoidal and marquise cut. This creates a wonderfully dynamic picture. All the diamonds used here are of exquisite quality with very beautiful clarity and shine in brilliant white. The center of the ring, however, is a quality emerald whose intense green colour seems to be animated by an inner fire. If you look inside the stone, you can see fine crystal inclusions, which reveal the natural formation of the stone: This is not self-evident, because since the 2nd half of the 20th century also the so-called flux-syntheses are produced, artificial emeralds, which were created in the laboratory. However, an independent laboratory finding also proves that this emerald was created in a natural way. Thus, it is not only a decorative centerpiece of a precious ring, but also a valuable investment. In the midst of the playful yet graphic ballerina setting, the precious stone is shown off to its best advantage.
