Rainforest Green & Star White
High quality band ring with emerald & diamonds in yellow gold, 1990s
"Emeralds with diamonds are particularly beautiful, provided that the stones are beautiful in color and cut, this composition looks incredibly fresh and graceful," wrote the influential German fashion journal "Bazar" back in 1894. This vintage band ring from the 90s of the 20th century features a solidly crafted ring band made of 18-karat yellow gold. At its center, the ring is adorned with a particularly beautiful cabochon-cut emerald and two gorgeous sparkling diamonds framing it. The white brilliant-cut stones have a total weight of about 0.46 ct and wonderfully complement the intense green of the emerald. The ring band widens towards the top, placing the precious setting in the centre of attention. The solid 750 gold ring is comfortable and easy to wear every day. The simple yet special ring is crafted with the quality one could only wish for in such a piece of jewellery. A fine jewel of noble restraint and unrestricted wearability - a classic piece of jewellery with style!
The emerald is one of the most valuable gemstones and has always had a very high value in many cultures. The ancient Egyptians recognized early the healing powers of the emerald, but especially its effect on the eyes. Pliny the Elder wrote about it in 77 AD: "If the eyes are weakened, they are strengthened again by looking at the emerald. The gentle green of the stone drives away dullness". Nero, for example, is said to have worn an emerald as a monocle to strengthen his eyes, and it is also said of Cleopatra that she supported her beauty and youth by wearing emeralds.
