This set of bangle, ear studs and a brooch spans several generations. Because it combines jewellery and gemstones from a period of almost 100 years: And thus gives us an insight into the change of fashions, but also the love of a family for its own history. The bangle in the set is probably the oldest piece. On its face are three old brilliant-cut diamonds and two rubies set in warm, gleaming red gold. The gemstones already give the bangle a romantic meaning, the ruby through its colour of love and the diamond through its meaning as an indestructible, eternal, imperishable gemstone of love. The other jewellery pieces also bear rubies and old-cut diamonds. However, the details of their workmanship and design reveal that they were created later. The brooch probably in the 1950s, because the way the brooch pin is held did not exist like this in the years just before 1900. And the ear studs probably in the 1980s, when warm shiny red gold became fashionable again after a long phase in which white gold was more in demand. We assume that here several generations of a family have had their family jewellery adapted and revised again and again to meet their new needs. In the 1950s brooches were a big fashion, worn on the shoulder. Stud earrings, on the other hand, are a more recent fashion: but by using the same warm rose gold and radiant old-cut diamonds over and over again, all the jewellery forms a wonderful unity. Where do the diamonds come from? Probably from the family's possessions as well. Perhaps another piece of jewellery was no longer wearable and the diamonds found a new use here. Certainly they already come from the years of the bangle, from the last years of the 19th century.
