Classic band ring in rose gold with old cut diamond, around 1880

To precisely date a band ring, whose characteristic feature is actually to be timeless and simple - this is not always easy. The band ring here, which fulfils this ideal so wonderfully, nevertheless holds a hidden clue so that we can date it to the years around 1880. It is not so much the goldsmith's work that can be dated, it is rather the centrally set diamond solitaire of about 0.25 ct weight that possesses some characteristics that make it easily datable.... It is hand-cut in the old cut and still shows the slight cushion shape as it was cut in the middle of the 19th century to be replaced by rounder shapes towards the end of the century. The reddish gold alloy, which we find in many pieces of jewellery from the end of the 19th century, also corresponds with this period. The ring, which can be worn by both men and women, captivates with its precious materials and convincing design language, which combines understatement and simplicity. It is a stylish piece of jewellery from around 1880 that can also be worn every day thanks to its solid construction and insensitive materials.
