The Number Of Love

Romantic Ring Of Gold & Five Diamonds, Circa 1950

Five is the number of love in many Eastern and Western cultures as the indivisible sum of the male number three and the female number two. It was considered the number of the goddess of love Venus. Five shimmering diamonds also occupied the present ring made of gold. The wonderfully bright sparkling stones are arranged across the finger and have a pronounced presence, which is further enhanced by the white gold settings. The ring is particularly beautifully and vividly crafted, showing a wave structure in the side areas that makes the row of diamonds look like a ship on the ocean, making it something very special. The ring was created in the 1950s. The German economic miracle era produced jewelry that was often still inspired by designs of the golden twenties, but translated them into now much more material. It was a time of newfound abundance, and this was also evident in the material. Thus, the beautiful diamond ring we would like to present to you here is a classically massive child of its time. A romantic and shapely piece of jewelry of the German economic miracle.

The first years of the young Federal Republic experienced a previously unseen increase in wealth and quality of life with the economic miracle. After the sorrows of the war years, the displays of the stores shone in new luxury, and not least jewellery and watches also served to visibly show the new joie de vivre to the outside world. The style of the jewellery of these years was often oriented towards the late Art Deco, as it had been developed since the 1920s and continued to determine the designs of the large goldsmith companies, especially in the USA and France: rich furnishings, clear geometries and an exuberant sparkle of high-quality gemstones determined the picture.
