A Victorian-era toi et moi panel ring, featuring two natural, untreated rubies, and a bevy of chunky, old mine cut diamonds. This ring has a decorative openwork gallery and its shoulders are carved with charming concentric patterns that bring woodgrain to mind. The knife edge shank is half-round and tapering. These rubies are especially vibrant and the diamonds are all lively. This would make a lovely and unique engagement ring; its low profile makes it perfect for thoughtful, frequent wear.
