The green of the rainforests

Vintage Entourage ring with 3.00 ct emerald & diamonds, circa 1980

This ring presents a deep green emerald weighing three carats at its centre. A receding claw setting of yellow gold holds the precious stone and allows it to come completely to the forefront of the design. Finally, a halo of fourteen brilliant-cut diamonds of very beautiful, bright quality further intensifies the green color, but at the same time also breaks up the light into the colors of the rainbow through dispersion - an effect that is also called the fire of the diamond. The emerald was already known to the ancient Egyptians, but has been mined primarily in South America since the 16th century. Its deep green color is reminiscent of the rainforests there. The small inclusions in the stone are also poetically called "jardin", meaning garden. The emerald here is of that deep, rich color that makes the gemstone particularly desirable. The ring, in which these high-quality stones are united, is entirely designed for the optimal presentation of the precious materials. An airy, slightly ascending lower cadence allows plenty of light to reach the stones and is continued below the ring head as a rail of three narrow gold bars. Rings of this type have been popular since the 1960s. They were mainly made in yellow gold in later decades. The yellow gold provides a warm counterpoint to the cool brilliance of the diamonds. Perfectly preserved and richly coloured, the ring can also be worn as an engagement ring.
