In Blue Spheres

Effective White Gold Ring With 0.39 ct Vintage Diamond, Around 1960/2020

Jewellery designers have always loved playing with shapes and precious materials, because the ideal goal of a good piece of jewellery is for the elements used to enhance each other's effect. In this ring, a modern white gold ring from the USA, a fine frame of radiant blue sapphires surrounds a central white diamond. The blue gemstones, each of which has been specially cut into the setting to create the impression of a continuous ring, contrast brilliantly against the cool white gold of their setting, revealing myriad facets. In the center of the design, the central diamond weighing 0.39 ct is thus highlighted by the sparkling zone of sapphires. Three additional small diamonds on each of the ring shoulders also bring these little areas of the ring to shine. The central diamond is brilliant cut and came to us unmounted - we had it set in the new ring setting with the sapphires. We first had the stone graded by a Berlin laboratory: its colour was determined as Fine White (G) and its inclusion pattern as Si2, so the brillant has only small inclusions visible under a magnifying glass. The idea of forming a ring with a circumferential frame of calibrated coloured gemstones orbiting a central round stone was already practiced in the years around 1900 and such designed rings are described in old sources as "halo rings", because they remind of the light rings of some planets. Thus, this little jewel results in a harmonious and rich composition with its own charm, which lives not least from the contrasting colours of the precious gemstones.
