Antique gypsy set ruby and diamond ring made in 1918 made in 18 carat yellow gold.
This antique ring is set with two natural rubies and an antique mine cut diamond into the band in what is often referred to as â€śgypsy settingâ€ť. Often in these antique rings, there is a star pattern surrounding the stone which was created by the jeweller pushing into the metal resulting in not only the pattern but also a bead to add to the security of the stone.
The mine cut diamond was first cut at the start of the eighteenth century and is the first really brilliant cut diamond as it has fifty eight facets (cuts) just the same number as the modern round brilliant cut diamond of today.
