Gorgeous vintage gold ring with moonstone & diamonds, around 1980

Moonstones like the specimen in the centre of this impressive ring are among the very special gemstones. Their shimmering, mysterious play of colour is reminiscent of the light of the earth's moon and creates a mystical aura that captivates the eye. This unusual effect, called adularescence, is an incomparable, bluish-white shimmer that glides over the entire surface of the stone. The ring, which dates from around 1980, thus resembles a celestial apparition of moonlight and starlight. In its centre, a particularly beautiful and high-quality moonstone cabochon shines in delicate blue-white. With every movement, new, wonderfully shimmering light reflections arise and change the appearance of the gemstone. A ring of brilliant-cut white diamonds frames the central stone and sparkles like a band of stars. The oval ring head covers almost an entire finger limb and has a pleasant effect thanks to its warm colours. A magnificent and luxurious ring that has survived the test of time beautifully and can still be worn today without restriction.
