You might think that rings with a single diamond as a solitaire are not very different from each other. But in the field of goldsmithing, old familiar themes are varied and reinterpreted again and again. And here sometimes a tenth of a millimeter makes all the difference. In the thickness of the material, for example, this can decide whether a piece appears harmonious or clumsy, balanced or unbalanced. The omission of ornamentation can also be a design element, as can the reduction to the simple form or the polishing or patinating of surfaces. In particular, it seems, the goldsmiths of the 1960s varied the classic theme of the diamond solitaire. The white gold diamond ring here, with a diamond weighing 0.18 ct, shows a refreshingly modern design. Viewed from above, the ring is simply and hauntingly beautiful. Polished to a high shine, the angular ring band widens slightly towards the top to hold a fine diamond in four pips. When viewed from the side, the ring then takes on an almost architectural feel, as the design quality of the piece is particularly well expressed here. The four lobes of the gemstone setting taper towards the bottom, allowing the diamond to almost float. Like buttresses of a Gothic cathedral, the ring shoulders provide support and set the stage for the little gem.

The jewellery of the 1960s turns against the widespread classicism of the immediate pre-war years and thus testifies to the will for a completely new beginning. With lightness and wit, the deprivations of the war were renounced and turned to the future, without forgetting at the same time to express the new wealth of the economic miracle also in the field of jewellery.
