Sweeping pledge of allegiance
Large gold ring with sapphires & diamonds, England circa 1970
Bringing sapphires and diamonds together is a timelessly classic combination in the field of jewellery. This ring in 18-karat yellow gold also follows this path and presents three deep blue sapphires and five luminous brilliant-cut diamonds in a sweeping arrangement at its centre. But in addition to the beauty of their contrasting juxtapositions, the ring can also be appreciated for its romantic component. For the sapphire has been considered a symbol of fidelity from time immemorial, while the sparkling diamonds in this ring stand as a symbol of everlasting love. The ring, follows Victorian designs of the years around 1890 in its design and is particularly suitable as an engagement ring due to the clear symbolic language. Beauty and expressiveness create a gift of love of the highest order. The design is also very well balanced and harmonious throughout. The ring head is compact and therefore particularly comfortable to wear.
In 1955, the art historian Nikolaus Pevsner gave a series of radio lectures on the nature of English art on the BBC entitled "The Englishness of English Art". In it, Pevnser attested to the island nation's conservatism, sometimes bordering on stubbornness, which had led to astonishing continuities that gave English art a distinctive character.
