Modern white gold ring with antique 1.48 ct diamond, circa 1900/2020
Jewellery designers have always loved playing with shapes and precious materials. In this ring, a modern white gold ring from the USA, a fine ring of radiant blue sapphires surrounds a central round old-cut diamond. The blue gemstones, each of which has been specially cut into the setting to create the impression of a continuous ring, contrast brilliantly against the cool white gold of their setting, revealing myriad facets. In the centre of the design, the wonderful diamond is thus highlighted by the seductive luminous zone of the sapphires. Three brilliant-cut diamonds on each of the ring shoulders also make these parts of the ring shine. The idea of forming a circle of calibrated coloured gemstones was described in the years around 1900 as the "halo effect", as it reminded jewellery designers of light effects on some planets in the starry night sky. Therefore, it seemed fitting to our goldsmiths to set the antique diamond in the unworn, USA-made setting with the beautiful sapphires. The stone weighs 1.48 carats in slightly tinted white and, according to its cut, was created in the same years around 1900. This wonderful ring can be worn every day thanks to its quality materials and perfect workmanship.
