Vintage gold ring with natural ruby & trilliants, circa 2010

This Ring takes us to the beautiful blue Danube - to Vienna! Already in the times of the KuK monarchy, Vienna was one of the wealthiest centers in Europe and has remained one of the most art-loving cities ever. Hardly anywhere else are the museums as cultivated as in the Austrian capital and the theatres of the city are legendary. That is why we are always particularly pleased when a play comes to us that has had the good fortune to be created in the metropolis on the Danube. The ring presented here is such a piece. For it bears a typical Viennese master's mark on the inside of its ring rail. The ring is designed as a classic band ring, with two trillant cut diamonds framing a beautiful ruby in a solid bezel setting. Like the rest of the solid ring, the pleasantly flat ring head is forged from softly glowing gold and holds the gemstones securely. Red gemstones like the ruby have been a symbol of love since time immemorial, while the diamond represents the eternal, unbreakable bond between two people. The Rin thus has a romantic symbolism - and combines it with precious materials in a beautifully classic form. A perfect love gift and an everyday wearable ring in one.

"The jewels were a composition of diamonds and rubies, and looked as delicate, pure, and noble as a mediæval work of art set in colors. A veritable enchantment lay about this intimacy of water-glow and rose-redness distributed in the sensuous figures, which can only be so taken from the thoughts of our ancestors." Adalbert Stifter: Der Nachsommer, 1857
