Brilliant for the gentleman

Beautiful vintage ring with diamond solitaire in gold, around 1955

Elegant and striking, this vintage ring can be worn by both ladies and gentlemen. The ring made of 14-carat yellow gold has a dynamically fluted rail that still hints at the spirit of late Art Deco. At its center, the ring showcases a sparkling brilliant-cut diamond solitaire. The white diamond weighs approximately 0.18 carats and is shown to be of very good quality. A square carre setting in platinum supports its impressive white fire. Created in the fifties of the 20th century, the ring is in very good condition. A dreamlike solitaire, best workmanship and convincing design language create a stylish piece of jewellery for the man (and woman!) of the world.

The first years of the young Federal Republic experienced a previously unseen increase in wealth and quality of life with the economic miracle. After the sorrows of the war years, the displays of the shops shone in new luxury, and not least jewellery and watches also served to visibly show the new joie de vivre to the outside world. The style of the jewellery of these years was often oriented towards the late Art Déco, as it had been developed since the 1930s and continued to determine the designs of the large goldsmith companies, especially in the USA and France: rich furnishings, clear geometries and an exuberant sparkle of high-quality gemstones determined the picture.
