A Little Ship Through All Times

Delicate, Playful Ring With Diamonds in Platinum, From Our Workshop

The delicacy and light elegance that distinguishes so many designs of the Belle Époque has been lost in many pieces of jewellery of our time; and so we decided to revive it in this ring. Based on the so-called shuttle or navette rings of the time around 1900, this ring from our workshop has an elongated ring head. In fine openwork, we designed it with asymmetrical ornaments reminiscent of the Art Nouveau style of those years. The centre of the ring is adorned with a trilogy motif of three diamonds borrowed from the same period, each symbolising in turn the past, present and future of a couple. The central flawless diamond of fine colour and weighing 0.10 ct focuses on the present. Two smaller octagonal-cut diamonds stand alongside it, and the curves at the top and bottom shine subtly in the brilliance of four more rose cut diamonds. A narrow ring band joins the shuttle with its precious cargo. With its all-white aesthetic and delicacy, the ring is in the jewellery tradition of the Belle Époque, when platinum was just being discovered as a jewellery material and white jewels shone in the new electric light of the big cities. Thanks to its flat ring head and high-quality materials, it can also be worn on a daily basis, making it particularly suitable as an engagement ring.
