Alliance in Green & White

White gold band ring with emerald cabochon & diamonds, 1980s

This fine vintage band ring, which came to us from southern Germany, consists of a solid ring band made of high-carat white gold, which is adorned by three wonderfully sparkling gemstones of beautiful quality. Two white brilliant-cut diamonds of around 0.12 carats together frame a green emerald which, cut into a cabochon, forms the central focal point of the ring. The relatively narrow ring band widens slightly towards the top and thus decorates the hand to great effect. Rings with stones that are set following the band are also called alliance rings. They convey an idea of love for a person: the triple number of gemstones, for example, stands for a time lived together. Through the gemstones, past, present and future are symbolically represented and united in one piece of jewellery. The focus of this ring is on the largest stone, the emerald, which stands for the present and thus reminds us to use and enjoy the present moments. The ring thus becomes a "Carpe Diem!" in jewel form. Classic band rings like this one are timeless pieces of jewelry, but since most rings of this type are forged in yellow gold, this white gold example is special. The ring is pleasantly valuable, forged by hand and can be worn every day without any problems.
