Expressive white gold ring with 1.25 ct diamonds, circa 1970
Jewellery of the 1960s and 1970s is characterised by optimism and a belief in progress. After the organic forms of the 1950s, a new desire for geometry and unusual shapes returned in the age of the race to the moon. Rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings - the gold colour of the time was white again and it is above all the cool sparkle of diamonds that, together with the white gold, makes the jewellery of this period so appealing. The settings of the designs broke away from the heavy desire for yellow gold and increasingly dissolved into a mesh of white gold structures. The filigree forms of space equipment, the antennas of Sputnik, but also the skeletal structures of the new skyscrapers may have been the inspiration here. It is not without reason that a brooch with the name "Cosmos" wins the prize for the Jewel of the Year in 1967. This ring is no exception. It is made of high-carat white gold and features a face with slightly curved grooves that effectively structure the polished surface. The undisputed showpiece of the ring is the almond-shaped centre with its sparkling extensions to the ring shoulders. Here, a total of 31 first-class brilliant-cut diamonds are set, which impress with their pure white colour and excellent purity. All the stones are set in a modern full cut, which enhances their sparkle wonderfully - their total weight is around 1.25 carats. A fine vintage piece of jewellery full of class, light and elegance.
