Description
Rings with three gemstones arranged across the finger are something we often encounter in times gone by. A great fashion they were in the late Victorian era, then mostly set in yellow gold. In a new, simpler form, and mostly in white gold, they became fashionable once again in the last decades of the 20th century. Such a ring is presented here. The design is delicate and allows the three stones to virtually float above the finger in restrained lobes on a delicate ring band of white gold. A brilliant-cut diamond is set on each of the left and right sides. The stones of together 0.68 ct have a very good fire and shine in a slightly warm toned white. Their light therefore matches quite wonderfully with the ruby in the center of the ring. Because this stone is also of the best quality and it shines in an intense pink-red. The ruby is a natural, untreated gemstone. This means that nature alone has created the colour of the stone. No other human intervention was necessary to improve the stone, no fillings, no coloring, no heat treatment changed it. This is precisely what makes the quality of the ruby. In addition, the stone comes from Burma, which has always been the best origin of a ruby, because here there is no disturbing blue tint in the stone. Two independent appraisals have determined the quality of the gemstones. The ring in its timeless design was created in the years around 1970. We discovered it here in Berlin.

"Rubies are especially suitable for young lovers [...] In general, it is considered the symbol of the most passionate and ardent love, while the pearl is considered that of purity of soul." (Bazar. Illustrirte Damen-Zeitung, November 1886). According to tradition, rubies are divine, princely stones. Since their color is reminiscent of blood and blazing fire, their association with burning love was natural. Supposedly, they even prevent diseases and give proud, fresh courage. Indian princes therefore even had themselves addressed as "King of Rubies".
