With momentum into the economic miracle

Dynamic vintage ring with half carat in white gold, around 1950

The ring presented here is a child of the economic miracle. After the troubles of the post-war period, there were now funds left to invest in beauty and a little luxury. The ring presented here bears witness to this. The white gold ring is designed around a wonderful half carat diamond. The transitional cut diamond is very pure (vvsi), white and has wonderful fire. It is set high above the dynamically curved ring band, which fans out into four individual arches here, on the show side of the ring. The two center bars are polished, narrow, and give plenty of light to the diamond in the center. The two outer bars are slightly wider and set with more diamonds. They end at the side after reaching the diamond in the center. 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. This ring, which we discovered in North Rhine-Westphalia, has precisely this lightness, yet at the same time it is a child of its time, as a glance at the workmanship and the cut of the central brilliant-cut diamond make clear. The classic engagement ring is wonderfully preserved and, with its dynamic yet harmonious composition, always draws the eye back to the actual focal point of the piece of jewellery - the beautiful diamond solitaire!
