Land of memory

Classic half-memory ring with diamonds in white gold, circa 1960

Did you know that the form of the memory ring already existed in ancient Egypt? Already from the 2nd millennium BC there are findings of metal rings surrounded by a continuous row of precious stones. In a special variant, such rings were formed in the Egyptian advanced civilization in the style of a coiled snake - a symbol of infinity. This piece of jewellery is a so-called half-memory ring. Its upper side presents nine sparkling octagonal-cut diamonds in bright white gold weighing a total of about 0.27 ct - this is enough to place a band of sparkling diamonds on the upper side of the finger when worn. A plain bar completes the piece of jewellery. The ring is beautifully preserved and was made in Germany in the years around 1960. Its quality craftsmanship distinguishes it from many similar rings that were and are made by machine.
