Exciting vintage ring with natural sapphire & diamonds, 1960s
Jewelry of the 1960s usually focused entirely on the beauty and luxury of precious gemstones. The color of the time was sparkling white, like the stars - often combined with blue, like the sky of the night. Occasionally, other coloured stones in primary colours are found alongside sapphires, but it is the cool sparkle of these gemstones, combined with white gold, that is the appeal of the jewellery of this period. A precious sapphire is also the focal point of this ring. The natural stone of 2.00 ct weight shines in a deep blue. Sixteen white diamonds frame it and vary the classic pattern of the Entourage ring. Typical of the period in which the design was created, not only are brilliant cut diamonds chosen, but marquise cut stones are also set around the sapphire. The design is thus less round and smooth than the jewelry of earlier eras, but rather powerful and individually almost futuristic. The high-quality gemstones are set in high-carat white gold. The designer has staggered the stones on different levels, almost placing them on top of each other, so that the ring actually sits above the finger like a modern sculpture. This may border a little on wasteful, but it only enhances the gorgeous, luxurious effect of the ring. After all, the ring is not everyday jewellery, but a statement piece that wants to be shown off joyfully on special occasions - in moments that make you forget about everyday life. To make sure that the gemstone in our ring is a natural sapphire, we commissioned an independent appraisal from the German Society for Gemstone Appraisal in Idar-Oberstein. The experts came to a valuation of 7.760,- Euro.
