Rings in white gold and diamonds stopped by six prongs: the classic world of Salvini with the Lavinia collection ♦ ︎
At the end of the nineteenth century a new way of mounting the diamond on a diamond ring spread: instead of four prongs, the stone began to be stopped by six prongs. In reality, the four-brand system continues to be used. But the rings with a diamond stopped by four brands have many fans. The six closing points are generally lighter and thinner than those used in the four version. Although a small area of the stone, sideways, is covered by metal, six are evenly spaced around the edge of the round diamond, forming a hexagonal shape that makes the stone a little larger when viewed from a distance. In short, it makes a diamond a little more important. And this is the path chosen by Salvini for his Lavinia collection.
The rings with one, three or five diamonds are made with the classic white gold and the equally classic brilliant. Prices for a solitaire start at 1700 euros, with the lowest carat of 0.25 carats, class G, to go up to about 2,700 euros for a ring trilogy for 0.75 carats. Lavinia Andorno
