A romantic wedding proposal and later a wedding ceremony in the company of friends and family - a bride says "yes" to her partner twice. As symbols of this promise of marriage and love, an engagement and wedding ring are traditionally worn. While in Germany and Scandinavia the ring finger of the right hand is chosen for the wedding ring, in most other countries the rings are worn on the left hand. After the wedding, the engagement ring worn on the left is often placed in front of the wedding ring as a pre-engagement ring. One such ring is this fine diamond ring from the 1970s. The elegant, understated bar of 14 karat white gold showcases a 0.40 ct diamond of wonderful quality as a sparkling solitaire. The fine gemstone displays impressive fire and is held in place by a chaton with four pronges. The beautiful vintage ring with a wonderful diamond in a modern full cut is an elegant engagement ring that came to us from the west of Germany.

A ring with a single, large diamond is considered the classic engagement ring today. Here, the precious (and, according to legend, indestructible) stone stands for eternity - which is thus meant to underline the duration of the promise made with it. Significant for this connection was the New York jeweler Charles Lewis Tiffany. Tiffany first marketed such rings through his mail-order catalog in 1886 and specifically promoted them as engagement gifts. In fact, however, the tradition of seeing a diamond ring as a symbolic piece of jewelry is far older. As early as 1477, it is said, Duchess Mary of Burgundy received a diamond ring as a promise of fidelity from her future husband Maximilian of Habsburg.
