In the style of antiquity

Wide vintage gold ring with coloured stones, Germany around 2000

A wide band of gold wraps itself effectively around the finger and becomes narrower towards the bottom to increase wearing comfort. A cabochon of synthetic blue sapphire is accompanied by two green glas drops and forms a decorative trimming of the jewel. Between the gemstones are small twisted gold wires that form a decorative pattern reminiscent of small cords that enliven the ring's matt surface. The design of this piece of jewellery is reminiscent of rings from classical antiquity; its shape makes us think of Roman rings such as those found during excavations in Pompeii. In addition to the gold used here, an analogy to jewellery of antiquity is also the partial setting of the ring with glass stones, because real emeralds and sapphires were rarely used in Roman times; coloured glass is far more common as a setting for golden rings. The decorative gold ring found its way to us from the Rhineland and is wonderfully preserved.
