Antique trilogy ring with sapphires & diamonds in gold & platinum, c. 1910

We first encounter rings with delicately curved rails, at the ends of which precious gemstones or pearls are presented, in the years around 1900. Inspired by the dynamic forms of Art Nouveau, this jewelry fashion quickly became a great success. No wonder that corresponding designs remained modern for many decades, despite all other changes in taste. The ring here presents, between the curved ends of its ring band, two magnificent blue sapphires accompanied by an old-cut diamond. Fine millegrains and six additional diamonds add further sparkle. They are set in gleaming white platinum, which visually connects all the gemstones. The ring itself is made of gold. Rings with three central gemstones have a very special meaning in jewelry history. These pieces of jewelry are called "trilogy rings". The trinity of gemstones is said to represent a shared temporality: Past, present and common future. The diamonds as - according to legend - indestructible and thus eternally durable gemstones stand for the infinity of the relationship and the sapphire as a blue gemstone has always been a symbol of fidelity. The piece of jewelry was created in the years around 1910 and was probably a commissioned work, because it has a little secret with a personal component: The diamonds in this ring are significantly older than the ring itself. You can tell by cushion cuts of the diamonds. They were probably taken from a much older piece of jewelry to decorate this ring. The ring can be a perfect engagement ring or romantic gift.
