Timeless vintage ring with three diamonds in gold, Germany around 1965
Rings are emotional pieces of jewellery and often gifts to loved ones. This ring from the sixties is also such a romantic piece of jewellery: at its centre, it presents three sparkling brilliant-cut diamonds in radiant white color with a total weight of around 0.52 carats. The use of three stones in the ring makes it a so-called "trilogy ring", which is ideal as an engagement ring. Its three stones are representative of a shared past, present and future, giving a reference to a life lived together. Our ring also presents its precious setting in this symbolism. Delicate lobes of white gold hold the diamonds securely while the three-part bar at the shoulders is made of yellow gold. The graceful ring found its way to us here in Berlin. We liked its timeless elegance, which embodies the style of international post-war modernism without frills.
The symbolic act of giving a diamond ring as an engagement gift is first documented in 1477 and can be traced back to Mary of Burgundy, who received a diamond ring as a promise of fidelity from her future husband, Archduke Maximilian of Habsburg. Wearing a ring as a sign of commitment on the third finger of the left hand, on the other hand, was already the custom of the ancient Egyptians, who believed that the "love vein" connected the heart to the left ring finger.
