Belle Alliance

Antique band ring with untreated ruby & diamonds in gold, around 1900

The ring here sets three gemstones in warmly shining gold. Two historic old european cut diamonds frame a bright red ruby. All stones are set flush in the gold, which wraps around the finger as a wide band. Towards the top, the ring band widens slightly. Rings with stones set following the rail are also called alliance rings. They convey a very specific idea of love for a person: for example, the triple number of gemstones stands for a time lived together. Through the three gemstones are symbolically represented past, present and future in one piece of jewelry and united with each other. The focus of this ring is on the largest stone, the untreated, high-quality ruby in the middle, which stands for the present and thus reminds us to take advantage of the present moments. Through its color, it refers once again to love. The ring thus becomes a "Carpe Diem!" in jewel form. According to the hallmarks, the ring was made in Germany in the years before the turn of the last century. It is pleasantly flush forged and due to its flat design can be worn without any problems even on a daily basis. And it is worn equally well by ladies and gentlemen! An independent expert appraisal has confirmed the quality of the materials.
