"The aquamarine... has the glassy tint of the waves of the sea." - Charles Blanc: Art in Ornament and Dress, London 1877, p. 227. That aquamarine, the blue variety of beryl, has been associated with water in Western culture is already revealed by its name: "Aquamarine" is derived from the Latin word for sea water, aqua marina. Not only is it as brilliantly blue as tropical waters, it is also as clear and brilliant as the reflection of sunlight on the waves. It was precisely its bright light that also helped it achieve sudden popularity in the early 20th century: "All beryls are very brilliant in artificial light and therefore desirable stones for the evening," wrote Helen Bartlett Bridgman in 1915. An aquamarine of excellent quality is the setting of this d rinressg from the Art Deco period as well. Its rich, oceanic blue, the wonderfully translucent brilliance and its weight of 20.00 ct make the stone a true gem. The setting cleverly raises the aquamarine slightly above the finger so that its impression is not marred by fingerprints on the stone and the stone can optimally show its brilliance and wonderful color. The setting itself is not inferior to the stone in beauty. It is artistically and sculpturally crafted, surrounding the aquamarine on all sides with an openwork vine pattern. From above, only four diamond-set clasps seem to hold the beautiful stone. These are cool and geometric in design, completely in keeping with the contemporary taste of those years. The excellently preserved and high quality jewel comes with an independent gemmological report. According to its design language, the ring was made in Germany.
