Exquisite trilogy ring with natural pearl & diamonds in gold, art nouveau around 1900

The growth and development of plants was one of the most important sources of inspiration for the artists of Art Nouveau. Just as the first blossoms of spring herald the new year and the restart of life after the dark winter, Art Nouveau in the evening years of the 19th century also wanted to venture a new beginning in the field of art and in life as a whole. New forms in architecture, painting and also in the arts and crafts were intended to help people achieve more freedom and also more happiness by aesthetically reshaping life. This ring originates from this trend and is designed as an abstract floral composition. The simple ring shank is made from high-carat gold, which has a wonderful velvety shimmer thanks to an additional fine gold-plating. At the shoulders, it fans out into elegantly elongated leaf shapes reminiscent of lilies. They hold at their centre a setting of a shimmering natural pearl, accompanied by two sparkeling old-cut diamonds. The jewel thus follows the type of the so-called trilogy ring, which were particularly fashionable in the years before the turn of the last century. It is said that a hidden message can be read in trilogy rings: The triple number of stones is supposed to stand for the past, present and future and thus refer to a life lived together. This makes them particularly suitable as a gift for love or friendship. The well-preserved ring found its way to us in London and is a beautiful piece of Art Nouveau jewellery.
