Pink Red Wonder

Powerful Vintage Ring With Rubellite & Diamonds in Gold, Around 1990

This ring presents a large, round-faceted rubellite in high-carat gold. Four brilliant cut diamonds accompany the precious stone, drawing the eye again and again to the sparkling, glowing centre of the design. The pink-red glow of the rubellite is magnificent: it immediately becomes clear why this rare variety of tourmaline has often been mistaken for the finest rubies: The unique colour and powerful glow set this stone far apart from the rest of the tourmalines. The ring, created in Germany, presents the gemstones in airy cleverly chosen settings. The diamonds float a small distance above the ring band, receiving plenty of light. The rubellite is held in place by two wide knobs that expose it to the ring band and thus also allow light to reach it - but gently enclose it on the other two sides so the stone is protected where one might bump into it: And so the ring can also be worn carefree in everyday life. The ring was created in the years around 1990. At that time, people liked to combine diamonds and coloured stones with warmly glowing yellow gold. The designs are powerful and draw from the full, also with regard to the material used. Gold, for example, was much cheaper in relative terms than it is today. And so the weight of the ring is not surprising, which is due to the massive processing of the ring. We have had an independent expert's report made on the materials of the piece. It accompanies the ring and has also confirmed the natural origin of the rubellite. We discovered the ring in the Rhineland.
