Impeccably clear fire

Elegant white gold ring with antique cushion-cut diamond, circa 1860/2021

"Even if the preferred gemstones change and celebrate their resurrection as the darling of the ladies only after years - the brilliant has never lost its position, evenly like its impeccably clear fire it outlasts all currents of fashion. It is therefore understandable that so many desires secretly aim at rings with diamonds..." We discovered these lines in a jewellery brochure from the 1930s - and they still apply unchanged today, as this ring proves. For it sets in its center an old european cut diamond, slightly cushion-faced, of 0.86 carats. The stone shines in a lightly tinted white, which leaves a warm impression. Unlike modern brilliant-cut diamonds, which sometimes sparkle downright cold, this diamond thus shines in a warm color that makes one think of candlelight. Our gem setter has set this circa 1860's diamond in a newly made white gold setting. We discovered it in the USA, where it was created in a small manufactory in Chicago. Her design is inspired by 1920s jewellery designs and she accompanies the large diamond with eighteen other smaller brilliant-cut diamonds. An independent certificate is available for the central diamond, which came to us unmounted, and is included with the ring.
