Georgian OMC Diamond & Burma Ruby Flower Ring
* * SOLD * *
A soulful, Georgian-era, flower-form ring, modeled in 18k yellow gold with a silver top. This ring’s eight, oval, collet-set, old mine cut diamonds are arranged around its vibrant, untreated, central ruby. The shoulders of the ring are decorated with voluptuous, swirling repoussé work, that is typical of the period. This ring has a closed back, and its weighty, half-round shank tapers toward the base. These chunky old diamonds are especially charming— they have the small high tables and open culets that make OMC our favorite cut. The Burmese ruby is a lovely, deep, pink-red color.
US 5 1/4. This ring can be resized; resizing for this ring is complimentary.
Ring face measures approx 11 x 10.9 mm; shank measures approx 4.7 mm at the shoulder and tapers to approx 2.3 mm at the base; diamond ctw is approx .90; ruby is approx .33.
Condition is wonderful and this ring is even lovelier in hand. There is a small, old and insignificant indentation on the closed back of the ring head, near the seam— it looks like it has always been there.
