The classic solitaire ring, i.e. a ring with a central diamond, is said to date back to a design by the famous jeweller Tiffany & Co. in 1886. Today, this form of ring has become the epitome of the engagement ring, as it brings together all the symbolism that can be expected from a piece of jewellery to which a promise is attached. This diamond ring years around 1990 presents a wonderful brilliant-cut diamond weighing exactly one carat as a magnificent solitaire. The stone has a fine white colour (Top Wesselton/G) and shows only in 10-fold magnification a few and very small inclusions (Si1). The stone has a wonderful fire and sits in a classic setting of high karat yellow gold. Eight smaller diamonds, also of very good colour and clarity, set the ring shoulders with small flashes of light. The large diamond is held by a frame that makes the ring uncomplicated to wear. This fine piece of jewellery came to us together with an exquisite collection of vintage jewellery from Upper Franconia and we have had a certificate made by the German Society for Gemstone Evaluation confirming the quality of the materials used here. A wonderful gift.

The symbolic act of giving a diamond ring as an engagement gift is first documented in 1477 and can be traced back to Mary of Burgundy, who received a diamond ring as a promise of fidelity from her future husband, Archduke Maximilian of Habsburg. Wearing a ring as a sign of commitment on the third finger of the left hand, on the other hand, was already the custom of the ancient Egyptians, who believed that the "love vein" connected the heart to the left ring finger.
