Art Deco 1.01 Carat Old Cut Diamond & 1.14 Carat Ruby Crossover Ring, circa 1925
A truly sublime diamond and ruby crossover ring. The old European cut – weighing a known 1.01 carat – is internally very clean, full of fire, and impressively white. The colourlessness of the diamond contrasts with rich, deep, blood red ruby. Both are set in six claw platinum collet with fine diamond shaped detailing in the gallery and sit either side of a sweeping 18k yellow gold crossover band set with eight eight-cut diamonds set in platinum.
Accompanied by an independent jewellery report from IGR (#30309645).
