For my star

Fine vintage diamond pendant in white gold, 1980s

White jewellery suits every season. In summer it is light and elegant, in winter it is reminiscent of snow and ice, in spring it glows at us like lilies of the valley or the first tulips, and in autumn it glows softly against the warm red of the leaves. This ring from the 70s of the 20th century is also dedicated to the theme of white with its combination of materials. The elegant, small pendant shows itself in the form of a dynamic swirl of white gold. A brilliant-cut diamond of approximately 0.12 carat shines in its centre. Four small singe cut diamonds accompany the centre stone and lend the piece of jewellery an elegant sparkle. Very beautifully and effectively, the light reflections of the diamonds create shining points of light that inspire ever new contemplation. The pendant, which came to us from the Rhineland, rests on a delicate Venetian chain of rhodium-plated silver on the décolleté. It is in first-class condition, convinces with its high-quality materials and will, that much is certain, conjure up a glow in the eyes of the recipient as a gift.

Jewellery of the 1960s and 1970s is characterised by optimism and a belief in progress. After the organic forms of the fifties, a new desire for geometry returned in the age of the race to the moon. Rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings - the colour of the day was once again white, like the stars, often combined with blue, like the night sky. Occasionally, other coloured stones are found in primary colours alongside sapphires, but it is the cool sparkle of diamonds, combined with white gold, that is the main attraction of the jewellery of this period. The settings of the designs break away from the heavy lustre of the shiny yellow gold of late Art Deco and increasingly dissolve into a mesh of white gold rods. The filigree structures of space equipment, the antennas of Sputnik, but also the skeletal structures of the new skyscrapers may have been the inspiration here. It is not without reason that a brooch with the name "Cosmos" wins the prize for Jewel of the Year in 1967. And every single piece of jewellery wins lightness, light and elegance.
