Night and Day

Large vintage ring with sapphires & diamonds, London 1977

Night and day, you are the one Only you 'neath the moon or under the sun Whether near to me or far It's no matter, darling, where you are I think of you day and night... The perpetual alternation of day and night is a symbol of the cycle of life sung about since ancient times. In the ring here, this idea of the related opposites of light and dark is captured in a jewel - making it far more than just a ring with sapphires and diamonds. The ring face appears as a large oval, in the center of which a dark blue, natural sapphire is set as a radiant showpiece. Rings around this central gemstone is a wide frame of sparkling diamonds. In total, more than two cart diamonds are set here. A second row of now smaller sapphires completes the arrangement on the outside. Solid platinum holds all the stones securely in place. The ring follows in its delicacy and design jewelry designs years shortly after 1900, but in fact the hallmarks inside the ring reveal that it was created in 1977 in London. At the same time, the ring exhibits a level of precision that one would look in vain for in most contemporary goldsmith's work today. It is precisely for this reason that it is a pleasure to look closely at the ring; its stones are set precisely, its saw work executed with a steady hand. An independent appraisal has confirmed the quality of the gemstones. It comes with the ring, which we discovered here in Berlin.
