Trilogy in the economic miracle

Beautiful vintage diamond ring in white gold, around 1955

Three radiant brilliant-cut diamonds of about 0.30 ct together are gathered in the center of this ring. Arranged in a diagonal row, they lie between an effectively dividing ring rail and provide the basic shape of the design. Six additional diamonds set the front of the ring and complete its sparkling appearance. Thus, the ring holds a total of 0.42 ct of beautiful diamonds in solid white gold. The use of three large stones in this piece makes it a so-called "trilogy ring" that is ideal as an engagement ring. In its three stones, the shared past, present, and future are symbolically glimpsed, giving a reference to a life lived together and a life lived in the future. With its emphasis on movement through the arrangement of the stones and its delight in light, the piece is still very much in the 1930s fashion that we associate with Art Deco. However, the ring was probably made in Germany in the years around 1955, as the already modern full cuts of the diamonds reveal.

"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..." (From a 1930s jewels brochure)
