Fine vintage ring with 1,01 ct diamonds in gold, Nuremberg 1991
Hardly any piece of jewellery has the special meaning and deep symbolism of a diamond ring. As a sign of everlasting love and connection, the hardest mineral on earth has been used and worn in jewellery for centuries. Its radiant sparkle, always a sign of status and refined taste, will certainly not go out of fashion in the future. A sparkling row of four fine brilliant-cut diamonds weighing a combined 1.01 ct form the setting of this hand-forged ring, for which the original invoice dated February 15, 1991 has been preserved. The diamonds in the colour Top Wesselton, (fine white, G), with very good clarity (vsi) are set as a sparkling row in white gold, while the ring band shines in warm, high-carat yellow gold. The expressive, handcrafted ring shines with more than one carat of precious diamonds and a powerful design.
The symbolic act of giving a diamond ring as an engagement gift is first documented in 1477 and can be traced back to Mary of Burgundy, who received a diamond ring as a promise of fidelity from her future husband, Archduke Maximilian of Habsburg. Wearing a ring as a sign of commitment on the third finger of the left hand, on the other hand, was already the custom of the ancient Egyptians, who believed that the "love vein" connected the heart to the left ring finger.
