Victorian 1.74 Carat Ruby & 1.30 Carat Diamond Five Stone Ring, circa 1850
A sublime Victorian graduated five stone ring which is bursting with character and quality. The rubies are perfect pigeon blood colour assoctiated with Burmese stones. Interspersed with two vibrant old cut diamonds, one ever so slightly whiter than the other. We love how these hand cut stones are a little bit idiosyncratic and “imperfect,” making this classic Victorian design a touch eccentric and completely unique
