Victorian Era Ruby & OMC Diamond Five Stone Ring in 18k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A darling, Victorian-era, five stone ring, modeled in 18k rosy yellow gold, with a tapering profile. This ring is set with three, vibrant, natural, rubies (.60 CTW) and two, cushion-shaped, old mine cut diamonds (.30 CTW)— these gemstones graduate in size, with the largest resting at the center. They are held in sculpted, split-prongs that are integral to the ring’s subtly-lobed, scalloped gallery. The ring's substaintial half-round shank tapers, somewhat, toward the base. A classic ring, with an iconic form, this boasts especially pretty rubies, rare old gemstone cuts, and generally lovely proportions. This ring retains its full set of english hallmarks, including a maker's monogram— it was made in Birmingham in the year 1890. It would make a lovely wedding or anniversary ring.

Please note subtle cut and color variation between rubies— the gem on the left is rounder than those in the center and on the right, and the gem on the right is slightly pinker in color than the center and left rubies. All stones are original to the ring, and these small differences do not compromise the ring's appeal, in wear.
