Four sparkling diamonds
Vintage ring with diamonds in yellow & white gold, Germany circa 1960
Hardly any piece of jewellery has the special symbolism of a diamond ring. As a sign of everlasting love and connection, the hardest mineral on earth has been worn for centuries. Its white, radiant sparkle will certainly never go out of fashion in the future. Four radiant brilliant cut diamonds form the setting of this fine ring, which was created in Germany in the years around 1960. The diamonds are set in a row in white gold settings and they have a beautiful presence. The side section shows fine ornamentation and the ring is so comfortably crafted that it can be worn every day. A pretty ring with four sparkling diamonds that found its way to us here in Berlin.
The symbolic act of giving a diamond ring as an engagement gift is first documented in 1477 and can be traced back to Mary of Burgundy, who received a diamond ring as a promise of fidelity from her future husband, Archduke Maximilian of Habsburg. Wearing a ring as a sign of commitment on the third finger of the left hand, on the other hand, was already the custom of the ancient Egyptians, who believed that the "love vein" connected the heart to the left ring finger.
