Unworn white gold ring with 0,64 ct diamond, circa 1960/2020
Hardly any piece of jewellery has the special meaning and deep symbolism of a diamond ring. As a sign of everlasting love and connection, the diamond, the hardest mineral on earth, has been worn as a gemstone for centuries. But unlike today's brilliant-cut diamonds in the modern full cut, of which almost one looks like the other, diamonds in older cuts can always be enjoyed for their very own hand-created proportions and shape. The central brilliant, here presented to us in a finely crafted white gold ring, is a gorgeous white (Fine White, F) with wonderful light refraction and excellent clarity (vsi). The diamond has a weight of 0.64 ct and shows a sparkling firework of light reflections. Cut in the 1960s, the solitaire is accompanied by sixteen smaller diamonds that adorn the shoulders and head of the ring. Fine millegriffes embellishments and delicate piercing work distinguish the ring, which we added as a modern addition worthy of the brilliant diamond. This is because the diamond came to us unset and has been added to in our workshop with the modern setting, which we sourced from a manufacture in the USA. The white gold, with its cool and light colouring, brings out the sparkle of the magnificent centre stone particularly beautifully. The noble ring is a dreamlike piece of jewellery, which is particularly suitable as a love gift or also as an engagement ring. But whatever occasion you wear the ring for, it will be admired!
"Even if the preferred gemstones change and celebrate their resurrection as the darling of the ladies only after years - the brilliant has never lost its position, evenly like its impeccably clear fire it outlasts all currents of fashion. It is therefore understandable that so many desires secretly aim at rings with diamonds..." (From a jewellery brochure of the 1930s)
