One in a Million

Modern platinum ring with impressive 1.28 ct diamond solitaire, circa 1950/2019

A diamond is always individual, because no two stones are the same: Every cut, every shade of colour and every inclusion make a naturally formed diamond a unique gift. This large brilliant-cut diamond from around 1950, which we see here in a finely crafted platinum ring from our workshop, presents itself with wonderful light refraction. The stone has a weight of 1.28 carats with a slightly tinted colour and a few small inclusions inside. The large brilliant-cut diamond is held in a simple claw setting and presents itself without distracting decoration. It is accompanied by six smaller diamonds that lead from the stepped ring shoulders to the delicate rail and harmoniously finish off the ring head. Combined with the cool, white platinum, the stones gain even more brilliance. Even in the 1900s, this precious metal was prized for setting diamonds in particular. An impressive and classic diamond solitaire that can also be worn on a daily basis. The ring is ideal as an engagement ring.

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.
