For the Love of the Sea
Fine Platinum Ring With Aquamarine & Diamonds From Our Workshop
The love for antique objects has let us as antique jewellery dealers now and then also buy unmounted historical gemstones, for which we then had to look for beautiful settings. This search, however, turned out to be more difficult than expected. Modern ready-made settings, as you can buy them in stores, are often soulless machine products without a feeling for form and proportion. But beautiful, hand-forged, antique frames rarely come to us without matching diamonds. So we commissioned our goldsmith to forge a ring setting to our design, which we then had cast in platinum using an ancient technique. Two small set diamonds in delicate millegrain ornaments divide the ring shoulders and give the piece a light elegance. At the same time, the piece of jewelry sparkles with every ray of light that strikes its finely crafted surfaces. The center of the ring now features a gorgeous water blue aquamarine, whose delicate colour harmonizes beautifully with the tone of the platinum. The result is a modern, cool-toned ring that, at the same time, with its delicate shapes and high-quality workmanship, is in the best tradition of European jewellery art. The ring can be worn every day without any restrictions due to its high-quality, insensitive materials and its flat design.
As the protective stone of seafarers, the gemstone of lovers or the stone that promises wisdom - for thousands of years, aquamarine has been one of the most valued gemstones. Even in ancient times, people revered it for its luster and colour, reminiscent of the sea and cloudless skies. According to tradition, it was also believed that the gemstone could appease the god of the sea, Poseidon: sailors therefore threw aquamarines overboard during wild storms to soothe the fury of the god of the sea. We use historic diamonds and recycled gold or platinum for the production of jewellery in our workshop wherever possible, in order to conserve resources and not pollute the environment. So even with a new piece of jewellery, the motto can be: "Antiques are green!"
