The Mystery of Time

Dreamy diamond ring of the Belle Époque aera in gold & platinum, around 1910

The mystery of time has always fascinated people. Its constant, unstoppable flow, which carries us all with it, has also left its mark on jewellery design. Among the particularly popular pieces that have time as their theme are the so-called trilogy rings, and such a piece is also before us here: Trilogy rings, as the name suggests, are always set with three gemstones that symbolize a shared past, present and future. In the case of this ring, it is three beautiful old-cut diamonds, arranged lengthwise along the finger, that dominate the design. Significantly, the center diamond is the largest of them. This expresses the fact that the present is always precious and should not go to waste. The gems are held by millegriffes-embellished architraves and seem to float in the middle of a circumferential shadow gap. Around them runs an oval framing that is fully set with more diamonds. The ring head is covered with a blanket of light platinum, which harmonises particularly beautifully with the shimmering setting, while the substructure and its delicate rail, on the other hand, are forged from 14-karat yellow gold. The ring was created around 1910 and is a piece of jewellery that is both beautiful and deeply symbolic.
