Timeless trilogy ring with old cut diamonds & pearl, circa 1910

Rings with delicately curved rails, at the ends of which precious gemstones or pearls are presented, are first encountered in the years around 1900. Inspired by the dynamic forms of Art Nouveau, this jewelry fashion quickly became a great success. No wonder that corresponding designs remained modern until the 1940s, despite all other changes in taste. The delicate ring here, which has a pearl and two diamonds enclosed between its arms, was created in the years around 1910. Two white sparkling old-cut diamonds of around 0.30 ct together accompany the grey-white pearl. The precious setting is arranged at an angle to the finger, giving the design an elegant dynamism. The curved rails also protect the fine pearl from damage. Trilogy rings, it is said, also contain a hidden message: The triple number of stones is supposed to stand for the past, present and future and thus refer to a life lived together. The emphasis here is obviously on the present. Just as the past and the future are eternal (the diamond is the stone of eternity), the present in the form of the pearl only shimmers for a brief moment - and must therefore be lived all the more consciously. With its classic design and high-quality materials in cool white, the ring is a timeless piece of jewellery that can perfectly complement existing jewels from the Belle Époque, Art Deco and even later periods.
