Here is a very elegant and versatile antique ruby and diamond ring that was made in 1879 and is so comfortable and easy to wear all the time, day or night and always be loved and cherished. Made in 15ct rose gold, the colour of the gold is just so lovely and has a gorgeous rose colour often associated with 15ct gold. 15ct gold was only used for a brief period until 1931 and has become collectable in its own right. However it is of course the design plus the addition of both rubies and diamonds that really compliment the rose gold so well making this ring so much more beautiful. Measuring 6.5mm wide at the centre, the ring tapers down so beautifully as it goes down and the ring is set with three beautiful rubies and two diamonds that add an elegant charm and sparkle to the ring. No matter when this ring is worn, this is a style of ring that will always be admired when it is worn with pride. Stock# ES6744 Hallmarked: Birmingham 1879 $Sold.

Dating from the Victorian period of the 1880's, this 15ct Albertina looks and feels so gorgeous with its intricate and femine style to it. Originally designed in the Victorian era of the 1800's as a way for a woman to wear her pocket watch and connect it securely to her dress, the tee bar at one end would be attached through a button hole with the pocket watch attached to the other, making it safe as well as easily accessible. Now more commonly worn as a bracelet, this antique Albertina has such a gorgeous colour thanks to being made in 15ct gold. 15ct gold was only used for a short time period from 1854 until 1931 and as it is no longer produced today, makes this Albertina even more special. At one end is a swivel clip and the other the most beautiful tassel and from one end to the end of the other, measures 22cm in length. As these are now commonly worn as a bracelet, near the tee bar is a link for the swivel to attach to, making this into a bracelet that measures 22cm in length. With a gorgeous section at the centre, combined with the style of yesteryear, this elegant Albertina will always delight the wearer now matter how it is worn. Stock# ES6693 Circa: 1880 $Sold

We all would love to think how romantic the Georgian and Victorian eras were thanks to poets such as Browning and Tennyson and authors such as Jane Austen and Charles Dickens who pennedÂ Pride and Prejudice and Great Expectations respectively, however the truth was as romantic as these eras were in some parts, in others ways, these times stank. Literally. And to overcome the terrible smells of the Victorian era, many women used a posy holder such as this one here to hold of course flowers that they could keep close to them to smell much nicer smells than of course the alternative. This antique posy holder dates from the 1870's and is so beautifully crafted and designed that will captivate you with the intricate detail. Measuring 14cm in length, it has the finger holder and a pin section to secure the flowers inside and this really is a wonderful window into the past of the Victorian era, and a part of life that is rarely if ever talked about or seen in period films and movies. All of this adds up to why there is such a love and fascination with antiques and why we just love dealing in them on a daily basis. Stock# ES6376 Circa: 1870 $Sold.

There is just so much detail in this antique turquoise and diamond ring, that it will captivate you from all angles including from underneath the ring. Elegantly hand made in 15ct rose gold in the Victorian period of the 1870's, the colour from the rose gold has that gorgeous subtle warmth to it that looks divine on the finger. Set into the centre is a natural piece of turquoise that has not been dyed or stained at all as is quite common today and then to make it even more charming it has been expertly hand carved with a daisy in the centre. In the Victorian times, the daisy represented such things as innocence and loyal love adding even more charm to an already delightful antique ring.

These diamonds are gorgeous being genuine antique cut diamonds and total 0.35 carats and the setting measures 14.8mm by 13.1mm and sits elegantly on the finger. Turning the ring over shows such exquisite hand engraving that really shows how much attention to detail was put into making this ring well over a century ago. Set with the natural turquoise with the hand carved design, surrounded by diamonds and with detail underneath that itself is breathtaking all come together perfectly in this ring and will always be admired whenever or wherever it is worn.
