The diamonds in a modern brilliant cut nestle together like a small river. Already at the princely courts of the 18th century, a rivière was one of the most precious pieces of jewelry a wearer could wish for. The diamond with its high hardness symbolized a strong bond and thus eternal love and beauty. Already the Greeks called this stone “Adamas” – the indomitable. Accordingly, rings with diamond rivières today are called “eternity” or “memory” rings to commemorate special events. A ring that is often chosen as an engagement ring and then secures the later wedding band as a keeper ring.
The ring offered here holds the diamonds in delicate claw settings that are quite restrained to set the scene for the little river.
