Here is a ring dating from the early part of the 20th Century that looks amazing with the use of 3 different coloured gemstones in red, white and blue with more than likely a bit of extra history attached to it.
Red, white and blue are often associated with the flag of the United States of America, however the colours are often used to represent the British Union Jack and was a popular choice of colours to be used in jewellery during the coronation of Kings or Queens such as this amazing ruby, sapphire and diamond ring.
In the Union Jack, the red is from the St George Cross, the white the St Andrew’s Cross and the blue from the St Patrick’s Cross
Hand made in 18ct gold, this ring was most probably made for the coronation of King Edward VII in 1901 and would have been worn with so much pride.
The design is so typical of this era and has influences of two styles of jewellery of this period – both the free flowing lines of the Art Nouveau era and the simple elegance of the upcoming Edwardian era.
With the three stones adding so much colour to this ring, they look so good set against the yellow gold and compliment each other so well.
The ruby measures 0.16 carats, the sapphire 0.20 carats and the diamond 0.18 carats, and sits so well on the finger.
This antique multi-gemstone ring is so unique and special and one that not only has the antiquity but a wonderful history associated with it as well and a real treasure to wear on your finger.
