Nostalgic roses

Splendid ring with diamond roses in gold & silver, around 1955

Rose-cut diamonds, also called "rose couronée", "crowned roses", can already be found in 16th century jewellery. Numerous famous diamonds such as the Orloff and the Grand Mogul are designed in this rose cut. It is characterized by the fact that the upper side of the diamond is faceted in a star shape and the underside is cut flat. This creates a very specific, soft shimmer that is very different from the sometimes garish glow of today's brilliant-cut diamonds. Even today, the diamond rose, which originated in the Netherlands, enjoys numerous enthusiasts. Therefore, we are very pleased to present you in this offer a beautiful ring of the 1950s, which presents three of these special gemstones at once. Arranged in an impressive triumvirate, the white stones shine in closed mirror settings of silver. A yellow gold bar with graceful floral engravings and fine leaf ornaments makes the glittering arrangement wearable as a ring. The design language of this piece of jewellery is based on 18th-century models whose nostalgic touch was once again particularly in demand in the post-war period. The ring was made in Germany, as its hallmarks indicate; it came to us from Bavaria. Perhaps it will soon find its place on the finger of a lady who can enjoy the gentle fire of its diamonds?
