Antique ring with diamond roses in gold & silver, around 1890
Rose cut diamonds can be found as early as 16th century jewelry. Numerous famous diamonds such as the Orloff and the Grand Mogul are designed in this rose cut. It is characterized by the fact that the upper side of the diamond is faceted in a star shape and the underside is cut flat. This creates a very specific, soft shimmer that is very different from the sometimes garish glow of today's brilliant-cut diamonds. Even today, the diamond rose, which originated in the Netherlands, enjoys numerous enthusiasts. This ring from the last years of the 19th century presents a variety of these special gems presented. Arranged into a three-tiered flower, the diamonds shine in settings of silver. The slight dark patina of the precious metal ensures that the diamonds shine all the more beautifully. A yellow gold rail with graceful floral engravings makes the glittering flower wearable as a ring. The design language of the jewel is based on 18th-century models whose nostalgic touch was particularly in demand again in the course of the Neo-Rococo period.
