Delicate daisy ring with diamonds & pearl in gold & platinum, c. 1910 & later

This ring is a so-called daisy ring, whose design is reminiscent of a daisy. A wreath of white old euorpean cut diamonds encloses like petals a centrally set pearl with a rosy luster. The diamonds together weigh about 1.49 ct and are set in fine millegriffes settings of platinum, which accentuate their bright color. The triad of white tones - platinum, pearls and diamonds - defined the image of festive evening jewelry in the early 20th century. Platinum had only recently been used in jewelry production at that time, but no select jewelry wardrobe would have been complete without it. White jewels made in this way responded to the new lighting conditions, as electric light had entered ballrooms and drawing rooms: Never before had diamonds shone brighter in the evening. The ring is beautifully preserved and appears fine and delicate despite its striking size and brilliance. The ring band was once completely replaced at an earlier date, possibly to accommodate a major ring width change or because the original rail had worn through. So today it can be worn again without worry and can be a festive companion on many occasions.
