Vintage Toi-et-Moi ring with diamonds & aquamarines, circa 1960

This vintage ring features a rich arrangement of twelve small diamonds and two seawater blue aquamarines set in white gold. The aquamarines form the showpieces of the design in pretty claw settings. To the right and left of them, the setting forms small arches that nestle against the aquamarines in a double shape. They are set with small diamonds. The aquamarines in the ring were probably renewed once. We do not know which stones originally adorned the ring. But the colorfulness of the aquamarines matches the cool white of the white gold and the diamonds quite nicely. One is reminded of clashing icy landscapes - not the worst thing in a hot summer! The design of the ring is still heavily influenced by Art Deco jewellery, with its delight in geometry and love of the colour white. The workmanship and the choice of white gold, however, makes us date the ring a little later, to the years around 1960. We discovered the ring here in Berlin.
