Green is the hope

Precious vintage emerald and diamond ring in white gold, circa 1975

The emerald is a gemstone that immediately captivates all gemstone lovers. Its wonderful and imperishable green makes it a stone of hope, as well as the stone of wisdom and inspiration. It is said that Cleopatra adorned herself with emeralds in order to rejuvenate herself and to preserve her beauty, since according to ancient belief, inexhaustible grace and youth reside in emeralds. For thousands of years, the emerald has been one of the most prized gemstones in the world, and stones from the world-famous mines of Colombia in particular enjoy a legendary reputation. The white gold ring here, circa 1975, presents a prong-set emerald of gorgeous green color. The stone has fine crystal inclusions that are considered positive identity markers and are referred to as "jardin" (French for "garden"). All around, the oval-cut stone is flanked by eight brilliant-cut diamonds of a total of 0.56 ct and very good quality, which shine out in competition with the large stone. Shining white gold, the emerald and brilliant cut diamonds form a harmonious interplay of white and green in this hand-forged ring - evoking the vibrant colours of the South American rainforest.
