White gold ring with 0.75 ct brilliant solitaire, Moscow 1974

Its frosty sparkle lends this diamond ring from Moscow an almost aloof elegance. Crafted from high-carat white gold, the piece displays the classic design language of the solitaire. In its airy claw setting, the flawless stone of a substantial 0.75 ct unfolds its wonderful fire in fine white with a quality that an independent laboratory has classified as "vsi", which means that the stone has only tiny inclusions, i.e. very good clarity. The diamond comes from the mines of Siberia. There the first diamonds of Russia were discovered in 1954, which were mined under enormous efforts. This stone was set into a solitaire ring in Moscow in 1974. A dreamlike piece of jewellery of timeless elegance that is also ideally suited as an engagement ring.

The term "Top Wesselton" was introduced in reference to a diamond mine named Wesselton, in which a particularly large number of diamonds in fine white were found. The mine itself is named after J. J. Wessels Senior, the owner of the Benaaudheidfonein farm, on which the Wesselton mine originated in 1890 as a result of diamond discoveries. The mine, which was active until 2005, is located in South Africa, near the border between the Cape Colony and the Orange River Colony. In 1891 the mine was taken over by the De Beers diamond group. The diamonds of the Wesselton Mine are characterized by their exceptionally good quality and their freedom from inclusions to the greatest possible extent. As in the case of the Top Wesselton, the other names such as River are derived from the places of origin of the diamonds so named. River-quality gemstones have been found primarily in alluvial deposits - that is, in rivers (source: Renesim).
