Antique Retro Style Ring with three Diamonds, Germany circa 1935

From the era of swing and big bands comes this gold ring. The elegant, plastic streamlined design of the years around 1935 is a typical design of the late Art Deco, also known as the "retro style". At the time, contemporary taste favoured warm gold, which made a furious comeback after the 1920s, when cool platinum dominated the jewellery world. The ring, hand-forged here, is set with three white old-cut diamonds that together weigh about 0.36 ct. The gemstones adorn the centre of the ring head in carreau settings of discreet white gold, while the ring itself is crafted from 14-carat yellow gold. Rings with three gemstones have a special significance in jewellery history: they are called "trilogy rings" and they are always charged with content and convey an idea. Thus, the trio of gemstones in a ring like ours stands for a common temporality: the past, present and future are symbolically united in one piece. The diamonds as - according to legend - indestructible and thus eternally durable gemstones also stand for eternity. A unique ring that can also be worn every day thanks to its compact design.
