There is a story to be told about this ring from around 1910, which explains its unusual shape with two different coloured stones accompanied by small diamonds. Designs with two opposing gemstones were very popular at the turn of the century; people loved to play with symbols: In the imagination of the time, two lovers face each other in the two precious gemstones; recognisable as independent elements, yet firmly connected by their feeling and symbolically united in one piece of jewellery. Originally, two diamonds were probably set between the two ends of the ring bar, symbolising the two lovers. At some point in later times, however, these stones were exchanged and replaced by a dark blue sapphire and a dark red ruby. Perhaps the idea here was to make the two protagonists even more individual, as husband and wife, joined in one piece of jewellery? In any case, it is clear that the combination of the gemstones enhances the meaning of the ring. The blue sapphire stands for the fidelity of the lovers and the red ruby for the love that unites the two people symbolised by this ring. The diamonds, which have been said to be indestructible since time immemorial, underpin the eternal nature of this union. The ring that we discovered in Munich is made of gold and platinum, which in later times was covered with a white rhodium coating.
