If you are after an antique Victorian era ruby and diamond ring of supreme quality and style then look at this one.
Hand made in the 1870’s, this lozenge shaped ring is made in 18ct gold and silver. This was the method of making rings during the Victorian era as white gold was not yet invented and platinum was not used yet in jewellery making.
This ring is not just simply set with rubies and diamonds, it is first set with the three rubies surrounded by 16 lovely old cut diamonds and if you look closely you will see that there are 6 smaller diamonds right next to the rubies.
The there is a further diamond on each shoulder to add to the sparkle of this ring and bring the total diamond count to 24. The total weight of the diamonds is an impressive 3.40cts and really makes this ring sparkle so elegantly.
The 3 rubies are all from Burma and have a very strong vibrant red colour and look sensational surrounded by the diamonds and really stand out with the strong red colour.
From one end to the other this ring measures 29.1mm by 12.6mm wide making this a real standout example of a Victorian era antique ruby and diamond ring.
Being all hand made, you can also see the quality of the craftsmanship when you admire the setting under the ring and see that even from this angle it is a piece of art to admire.
Antique rings always seem to have that extra something and the length of this ring, the way the diamonds are set to the fine detail under the ring all goes to make this ruby and diamond ring look sensational on any finger.
