What more do you want?

Wonderful vintage gold ring with pearl & diamonds, circa 1965

"You have diamonds and pearls, Have all that man desires, And have the most beautiful eyes - My love, what more do you want?" (Heinrich Heine) Hardly any combination of luxurious materials has inspired artists as much as that of diamonds and pearls. Heinrich Heine, for example, mentally placed these wonderful precious stones next to the beauty of a beloved girl. The musician Prince even named an entire album "Diamonds and Pearls" after these treasures of the earth and the sea. This ring presents a round cultured pearl of beautiful white color with light cream luster. A wreath of small diamonds frames the pearl in white gold settings. The ring band is yellow gold, giving the piece a lovely warm glow. The vintage ring was probably made in the 1960s. We have been able to find it in the Rhineland.

A treasure from the depths of the sea - In many cultures around the world, the pearl has a deeply symbolic character. In China, they are a symbol of wealth, wisdom and dignity; in Japan, they signify good luck; in India, the abundance of children. Even among the ancient Greeks and Romans, pearls were highly coveted as jewelry: the Greek term "margarita" was also used to refer to the beloved, as it were, a term that has survived to this day in the name Margaret. The classic pearl necklace must not be missing from a lady's jewelry box. With her you are always well dressed, she decorates for every occasion.
