White luminous half-memory ring with 1.72 ct diamonds, 1960s
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. The form of the memory ring already existed in ancient Egypt. Finds of metal rings surrounded by a continuous row of precious stones date back to the 2nd millennium BC. In a special variant in the Egyptian advanced civilization, the ring rail of the memory ring was shaped in the style of a coiled snake - a symbol of infinity. Here is a particularly beautiful example in white gold, which gathers ten white diamonds of very good fire. The ring, probably created in the 1960s, is designed with the diamonds as a band of equal width on the front side. Only below the finger does the ring band become slightly narrower so that the ring is more comfortable to wear. A particularly attractive feature is that the diamonds are set flush into the metal and a continuous band of white gold is set along the sides. This makes the ring particularly suitable for everyday wear, it can't get caught anywhere or pull threads and so it really is a companion for every day.
