Made in 18 carat gold in Chester in 1904, this lovely Edwardian era ruby and diamond ring looks as beautiful today as when it was made. Both the ruby in the centre and the rose cut diamond set on each side are not only set into the band, but they are gypsy set which not only adds security to the ring, but also an extra design element. Gypsy setting is a term given when there is a star pattern surrounding the stones in the ring which was created by the jeweller pushing into the gold resulting in not only a star pattern but also a bead to add to the security of securing the stone in the ring. The ruby measures 0.18 carats and the two diamonds total 0.02 carats and the top of the ring has an elegant dome to it that measures 7.6mm wide and tapers down to 3.3mm wide at the back. A very simple and elegant ring that can so easily and comfortably be worn all the time. Stock# ES8793 Hallmarked: Chester 1904 $Sold.
From every angle, this antique ruby and diamond ring is just spectacular and is made all the more wonderful by being set with an unheated ruby that has the most incredible colour. Centuries ago, people discovered that if you put a sapphire or ruby into a fire it will improve its colour and clarity, and people have been heat treating sapphires and rubies ever since for this reason. This treatment is worldwide accepted as a normal treatment and not deceiving in any way and is accepted as a standard treatment for sapphires and rubies as it remains stable and does not damage the stone. However not only is this ruby certified as being non heat treated, but being over 1 carat in size makes it even more wonderful as does the truly fabulous colour and clarity that it exhibits. The colour of this ruby is just amazing and when seen in natural light it somehow looks even more incredible and will no doubt always be admired from near or far. Highlighted by one mine cut diamond set on each side, these come together to that total 1.08 carats and highlight the ruby perfectly. Antique mine cut diamonds have become so popular in recent years and have all the charm and character of being cut by hand all those years ago. And then on each "corner" of the ruby, there is a single cut diamond with the four having a total weight 0.08 carats to add that extra sparkle to the ring. Measuring 8.7mm wide at the centre by 17.1mm across, leading down to the band the ring was beautifully and incredibly hand engraved and then admiring the ring from the side, there is also the most sensational scroll work that like the ruby is just breathtaking.
