High quality vintage ring with diamonds & sapphires in yellow gold, 1980s

Vintage jewellery from the 1980s is currently experiencing a great renaissance, as the 80s were a really elegant era in terms of fashion. We think of black and white ladies' blazers with large shoulder pads, elaborate perms and red lips and, above all, expressive costume jewellery - But this extremely interesting period of West German prosperity also produced jewellery pieces that captured and preserved the attitude to life of the Federal Republic of those years. This gold ring is one such piece of jewellery. Forged from high-carat gold, the ring presents itself as a domed band with a multitude of diamonds and dark blue sapphires set close together to form a so-called pavée. 17 natural sapphires and 28 brilliant-cut diamonds of a fine colour are spread across the ring's head, with the sapphires seemingly interspersed at random. This creates an exciting look reminiscent of the elaborate jewels of Wallis Simpson. An independent appraisal is available for the ring, which has confirmed the quality of the materials. It is supplied with the ring.
