Victorian 18K Gold Ruby and Diamond Ring
This is a very sweet ruby and rose cut diamond ring. It is a Victorian piece the makers mark and city are worn on the inside of the band, but there is the English hallmark for 18KT gold. The ring is a size 6 3/4 and could be easily resized. The central ruby is beautiful deep red with a pinkish overtone. It is 3mm is diameter and has a high table and is .15 carats. There are 6 rose cut diamonds that are bead set, they range from 1.3 - 1mm in size. The stones are set in a diagonal swash of gold ending with a scrolled element. I would date the ring to the 1890's. Perfect to wear alone or the stack.
