Here is a very beautiful antique ruby and diamond ring dating from the late Victorian era of the 1890’s that will suit any finger including making a wonderful engagement ring.
Hand made in 18ct gold, this ring is set with two very bright and vibrant rubies that total 0.76 carats and are so well matched in colour. The colour of these rubies are so lovely and are highlighted by the three large European cut diamonds and then looking closer, you will note that there are eight smaller rose cut diamonds that add that extra sparkle and wonderful charm ti an already very beautiful ring.

On the side there is the most delightful and charming scroll work that shows the quality of craftsmanship that went into making this ring over 120 years ago.
No matter what the occasion this ring is worn, it is destined to always be loved and cherished.
