Timeless trilogy ring with old cut diamonds & pearl, circa 1910

Rings with delicately curved rails, at the ends of which precious gemstones or pearls are presented, first appear in the years around 1900. Inspired by the dynamic forms of Art Nouveau, this jewelry fashion quickly became a great success. No wonder that corresponding designs remained modern until the 1940s, despite all other changes in taste. This delicate ring, which has two pearls and a diamond enclosed between its arms, was created in the years around 1910. Its center is occupied by a sparkling, slightly warm-toned diamond in the old brilliant cut. Weighing about 0.38 ct, the stone is slightly irregular in shape, not quite fully round, and was probably cut as early as the 19th century. It then found a new life in this ring at the beginning of the new century. The beautiful, lightly pressed pearls complement the slightly warm color of the stone. An overlay of platinum on the ring, which is made of gold, complements this variation of white colorfulness. Trilogy rings are said to hold a hidden message: The trinity of stones is said to represent the past, present and future, thus referring to a life lived together. The emphasis here is obviously on the present, which sparklingly asserts its place between the gently fading past and the not-yet-quite sharply discernible future. With its classic design and high-quality materials in elegant white, the ring is a timeless piece of jewellery that can perfectly complement existing jewels from the Belle Époque, Art Deco and even later periods.
