Precious vintage ring with 2.14 ct G color diamonds in white gold, circa 1970

Just like the currents of art, jewelry fashion always reflects what moves a society. In the 1960s, for example, jewellery came into fashion that seemed to be inspired by the race to the moon, by the new space travel devices and the thought of distant galaxies that suddenly no longer seemed quite so unreachable. Cool white metals characterized this fashion, often arranged into abstract, narrow wires and set with icy glowing diamonds. One such piece was the "Cosmos" brooch, which won the Jewel of the Year award in 1967. The present ring is such a piece of jewelry from the era of the Space Race. It is luxuriously appointed and centrally sets a 1.20 ct emerald-cut diamond with only the tiniest of inclusions, difficult to see even under a magnifying glass. Offset in height and held airy by fine lobes, 18 brilliant-cut diamonds surround the large center stone. With a fine white color (G), they are also exceptionally pure (if-vvsi). Unusual are the settings of the diamonds, which are not close together, but arranged with plenty of air in between. This allows plenty of light to reach the gemstones and accentuate their brilliance. The ring is in excellent condition. Its original yet reduced design strikes the perfect balance between timeless elegance and clear echoes of its period of origin. A true jewel that can delight many generations to come!
