This is a very sweet ruby and Rose Cut diamond 18k gold ring. The central ruby is a beautiful deep red with pinkish overtones. It is surrounded by six Rose cut diamonds bead set into a diagonal swash of gold ending with a scrolled element. The overall effect is simple and delicate, graceful on the hand.
Circa the 1890’s, the ring has the maker’s mark and city on the interior of the band, but it is worn down from age and undecipherable. However, the English hallmark for 18k gold is visible on the band.
The ring’s width at the top is 5/16” and the ring weighs 1.9 grams. The ruby is 3 mm and weighs .15 carats. The six Rose Cut diamonds range from 1.3 - 1 mm in size.
Ring size 6.75 and could easily be resized.
