It Had To Be You

Elegant gold ring with ruby & diamonds from our workshop

Isn't it beautiful when pieces of jewellery tell little stories? Since the beginning of jewellery history, gemstones have not only been precious and pretty materials - there has always been something higher associated with them, these rare jewels have always been something very special in terms of content. In Victorian England, this gave rise to a veritable language of gemstones. They were never worn for the sake of their beauty alone, but precious stones themselves were carriers of a certain message. The stones that have come together in this ring from our workshop also convey a deeper meaning: we see a red ruby in the centre as a symbol of love. It is combined with a total of six diamonds, which, as the hardest of all earthly minerals, stand for eternity. The ring is made of high-carat yellow gold, whose warm hue accentuates the gemstones particularly beautifully. The romantic message of eternal love that the ring conveys through its material symbolism makes it particularly exciting as an engagement ring or love gift for a special person.

"The jewels were a composition of diamonds and rubies, and looked as delicate, pure, and noble as a mediæval work of art set in colors. A true enchantment lay about this intimacy of water-glow and rose-redness distributed in the sensuous figures, which can only be so taken from the thoughts of our ancestors." (Adalbert Stifter: Der Nachsommer, 1857)
