My love, what more do you want?

Vintage gold ring with cultured pearl & diamonds, Germany circa 1990

"You have diamonds and pearls, You've got everything man desires And have the most beautiful eyes - My love, what more do you want?" (Heinrich Heine) Hardly any combination of precious materials has inspired artists as much as that of diamonds and pearls. Heinrich Heine, for example, mentally placed these wonderful precious stones next to the beauty of a beloved girl. The musician Prince even named an entire album "Diamonds and Pearls" after these treasures of the earth and the sea. The ring here is made of yellow gold and presents a round cultured pearl of beautiful off-white color in the center. Six small diamonds flank the pearl to the left and right on white gold crescents, delighting with beautiful quality. The piece of jewellery was probably made in the 1990s and found its way to us in the Rhineland. The ring appears classic and yet modern at the same time and has lost nothing of its appeal.

A treasure from the depths of the sea - In many cultures around the world, the pearl has a deeply symbolic character. In China they are a symbol of wealth, wisdom and dignity; in Japan they signify good luck, in India the abundance of children. Even among the ancient Greeks and Romans, pearls were highly coveted as pieces of jewellery: the Greek term "margarita" was also used, as it were, to refer to the beloved, a term that has survived to this day in the name Margarete. A lady's jewellery box should not be without the classic pearl necklace. With it one is always well dressed, it decorates for every occasion.
