Most beautiful illusions

Vintage white gold ring with 0.98 ct diamonds, Berlin 2016

In the center of this ring, a feat of goldsmithing has been applied: What looks from a distance like a large brilliant-cut diamond weighing about 1.50 ct and 7.4 mm in diameter is actually the union of ten smaller brilliant-cut diamonds that are here competing to shine. Four claws hold the brilliant-cut diamonds arranged in a circle and make the illusion of a single large diamond perfect. Illusion setting is what this type of stone setting is called. Two dozen more brilliant-cut diamonds occupy the ring band, making the ring a firework of light reflections. All the stones used have the "Top Wesselton" color grade and show only very small inclusions (vsi) that are not visible to the eye. Made of high karat white gold, the ring comes with its original 2016 expertise, it was purchased from Berlin-based jeweler Reuer. An ideal engagement ring in beautiful quality.

"Even if the preferred gemstones change and celebrate their resurrection as the darling of the ladies only after years - the brilliant has never lost its position, evenly like its impeccably clear fire it outlasts all currents of fashion. Understandable, therefore, that so many desires secretly aim at rings with diamonds..." (From a 1930s jewels brochure)
