The Eternal Flame

Vintage memory ring with 1.90 ct diamonds in gold, circa 1990

Memory rings (also known as "memoire rings") are particularly symbolic pieces of jewellery whose band is set with gemstones of the same size. The band is often decorated with stones all around, but there are also models in which the stringing of gemstones is limited to the upper part of the ring. The name can be explained by the fact that each individual gemstone should stand for a certain beautiful experience of the owner, which is thus kept alive in the memory. Memory rings are also often used as engagement or wedding rings. In this case, the term "eternity ring" is also commonly used. This ring from the last years of the 20th century shows itself in this classic form and impresses with its particularly high-quality features. It is made of 14-carat yellow gold and presents 19 sparkling brilliant-cut diamonds with a total weight of about 1.90 carats. The white gemstones have a very beautiful fire, which is optimally accentuated by the individual bezel settings. As a complete memory ring, the ring is set with gemstones all around, so it cannot be resized. The handmade ring in ring size 55 is a wonderful piece of jewellery that is particularly suitable as a love gift or even as an engagement ring.

"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. Understandable, therefore, that so many desires secretly aim at rings with diamonds..." From a jewellery brochure of the 1930s
