Diamonds and Pearls

Elegant white gold ring with pearl & diamonds, Germany circa 1975

Hardly any combination of precious materials has inspired artists as much as that of diamonds and pearls. Prince even named an entire album after these jewels, and especially in the field of jewelry, this classic combination has always been popular. This vintage ring also combines these two special materials. At its centre, it presents a wonderful cultured pearl with a fine, delicately melting luster. The large pearl is surrounded by a total of eight brilliant-cut diamonds with a claw weight of more than half a carat, which add sparkling highlights to the design. Here, four smaller stones are set between four larger brilliant-cut diamonds. A simple split band made of high-carat white gold completes the noble piece of jewellery. This high-quality ring from the 1970s came to us from Hanover and is in very good condition.

A treasure from the depths of the sea - In many cultures around the world, the pearl has a deeply symbolic character. In China they are a symbol of wealth, wisdom and dignity; in Japan they signify good luck, in India the abundance of children. Even among the ancient Greeks and Romans, pearls were highly coveted as pieces of jewellery: the Greek term "margarita" was also used, as it were, to refer to the beloved, a term that has survived to this day in the name Margarete. A lady's jewellery box should not be without the classic pearl necklace. With it one is always well dressed, it decorates for every occasion.
