Victorian 1.53ct Burma Ruby Halo Ring
* * SOLD * *
A striking, late-Victorian-era cluster ring, modeled in 18k rose gold, whose primary gemstone is a natural, untreated, 1.53 carat Burmese ruby. This exquisite, deep-red, cushion-shaped gem is held in ten claw-like prongs, where it is surrounded by a halo of ten glinting, rose cut diamonds. These soulful, hand-cut diamonds have domed faces with charming, irregular facets— they are mounted in silver seats, where they are held in place by a series of modified, rose gold prongs. The ring's open work gallery is crisp and crown-like. Its cathedral shoulders feature fleur-de-lis style decor, with a subtle bound detail at the base. The ring's half-round shank is reeded. Larger, no-heat rubies are increasingly rare— we love the way this vivid red gem contrasts with the white, mirror-like sparkle of the rose cut diamonds that surround it. This old darling would make an outstanding engagement ring!
