A rare find, this eye-catching original vintage ruby and diamond ring offers spectacular coverage, rich contrast, and a glamorous, diamond encrusted design! Crafted by hand near the turn of the century, the ring features rare French cut diamonds, a deep black enamel accent, as well as a stunning, hand engraved undergallery. The 11 carat (approximate) natural ruby is striking in size and displays a gorgeous, rich red hue. It is encircled by a double halo of vintage single cut and French cut diamonds punctuated by a ring of black enamel. The F-H VS diamonds are very high quality, and totaling approximately 2.35ct they have a very large and eye catching look! The brilliance of the diamonds is truly spectacular, and they provide a striking contrast to the rich red of the ruby. The setting, masterfully crafted in solid 14k yellow gold topped with silver, has an air of Victorian luxury. Measuring a stunning 30.4mm across, this is truly a one of a kind stand out piece that will show off your unique sense of style! A wearable artifact of the past, this antique ruby and diamond ring absolutely stands out from the crowd! The 11 carat (approximate) ruby cabochon has beautiful luster and a rich red hue. It is a gorgeous pure red color with no pink or purple overtones. The ruby has a few inclusions that reach the surface. They are mainly on the bottom of the ruby, and the few on the top are quite minimal. These inclusions have no impact on the stone’s wearability or longevity. This is simply a feature of how the rough came when the stone was mined. The ruby is natural and it is not glass filled like the majority of cheap rubies flooding the market which are also known as composite rubies. This stone is pure ruby, unlike the composites which are a mixture which includes very low quality ruby material. The diamonds total 2.35ct (approximate) and they are amazing quality! They all face up bright white and are graded F-H for color. All 100% eye clean, the accent diamonds are all graded VS for clarity. Even with a 10x magnified jewelers loupe, it is difficult to spot inclusions in any of these diamonds! The inner halo is made of up vintage single cut diamonds while the outer is made up of French cut diamonds. An antique cut, the French cut originated in the 1800s. Some jewelry dating from the turn of the century and the Art Deco era features French cut sapphires, but French cut diamonds are extremely difficult to find. The French cut diamonds as well as the enamel accent make this piece an incredibly rare and special find! The ring is made from 14k yellow gold topped with silver. This approach was common during the Victorian and Edwardian eras, and it creates a beautiful, bright background for the diamonds. The craftsmanship is spectacular and well preserved! The ring has only minor signs of wear. The ring measures an impressive 30.3mm across (north south) and 7.4mm from finger to top. Overall, this beauty has an eye catching and elegantly glamorous look! Incredibly rare, luxurious in design, and positively glamorous, this stunning ring absolutely stands out in a crowd! Whether you are buying for yourself or a special someone, this striking beauty is sure to impress!
