Belle Alliance

Antique band ring with sapphire & diamonds in gold, around 1900

This antique band ring features a solidly crafted ring band of warmly gleaming gold adorned with three sparkling gemstones: Two historic old-cut diamonds frame a blue sapphire, which forms the focal point of the ring as an oval cabochon. The ring band widens slightly towards the top. Rings with stones that are set following the ring band are also called alliance rings. They convey a very specific idea of love for a person: the three gemstones, for example, stand for a time lived together. The three gemstones symbolically represent and unite the past, present and future in one piece of jewellery. The diamonds as - according to legend - indestructible and thus eternally enduring gemstones additionally stand for the duration of the bond. The focus of this ring is on the largest stone, the middle sapphire, which stands for the present and thus reminds us to make use of the present moments. The ring thus becomes a "Carpe Diem!" in jewel form. According to the stamping, the ring was made in Germany in the late years of the turn of the last century but one. It is pleasantly forged and, thanks to its flat design, can be worn every day without any problems. And it can be worn equally well by ladies and gentlemen!
