When a Man Loves a Woman
Antique gold ring with 0.78 ct diamond solitaire, Great Britain circa 1920
Hardly any piece of jewellery has the meaning and deep symbolism of a diamond ring. As a sign of everlasting love and connection, the diamond, the hardest mineral on earth, has been worn as a gemstone for centuries. Especially a diamond in the old cut is an individual gift. Unlike today's full-cut diamonds, of which almost every one looks like the other, old-cut diamonds can always be enjoyed for their unique, hand-created proportions and shape. The central brilliant, which confronts us here in a finely crafted ring, presents itself in bright white and with beautiful light refraction. Cut in the first decades of the 20th century, the diamond weighs approximately 0.78 ct and displays an individual inclusion pattern that attests to its natural formation. The solitaire is held in place by airy crests that allow for optimal light penetration. Timeless and classic, a no-frills elegance distinguishes the ring, which we discovered in London, where it is believed to have originated. The fine ring is a dreamlike piece of jewellery, which is particularly suitable as a love gift or also as an engagement ring. Whatever occasion you will wear the ring for, it will surely be admired!
"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 jewellery brochure of the 1930s)
