A sparkling ribbon

Straight gold & platinum ring with old cut diamonds, circa 1930

Gods of love do not calculate... or do they? The number five was and is in many eastern and western cultures the number of love. Among others, it was already considered the number of the goddess of love Venus in classical antiquity. This ring is therefore a piece of jewellery to fall in love with: five sparkling diamonds set the ring, which is forged from yellow gold and platinum, in a glittering row arranged across the finger. Cut by hand, each diamond shows itself in the so-called old cut, which preceded the modern brilliant cut. A total of about 0.65 ct is spread across five stones, which line up in progression on the show side of the ring. The diamonds please with their beautiful, uniform color and good clarity. The gemstone settings are forged from platinum, making the front of the ring appear even more radiant. The sides of the ring are simple and straightforward, so that nothing distracts from the beauty of the five diamonds. The ring was forged in the years around 1930 and was a romantic gift of love. It came to us in Hamburg, where it may have been made, as it bears a German gold stamp.
