Seven days of the week. Seven wonders of the world. Seven heavens and seven hells. Mundane and mystical, the number seven is revered as one of most meaningful numbers in psychology, religion, spirituality, and culture. It is known as a number of completion, a number of good fortune. And with seven magnificent old mine cut diamonds, the Antique Collet Set Seven Diamond Ring is a fantastic embodiment of this magic number.
Expertly fashioned from 18K gold with an eye towards sumptuous luxury, any diamond ring this phenomenal would have once been reserved for royalty. One monarch—Louis IX of France—even went so far as to declare diamonds to be gemstones suitable for only the king. For two hundred years, anyone in France who wasn’t the king was denied the absolute bliss of wearing even one delicious diamond. And then along came Agnès Sorel, a woman who won the heart of Charles the VII and went on to challenge the royal rules. She won there, too, and took to adorning herself with the previously forbidden stones and encouraging other members of the French court to do the same.
If those same members of the court could travel in time and catch a glimpse of this dazzling dream of a ring, we think it likely they would want to snap it up for themselves. But since they can’t, it’s your lucky day. Lucky number seven—here it is in a stunning ring. All for you.
