Victorian 3.10 Carat Natural Burmese Ruby & Rose Cut Diamond Ring, circa 1870
This sublime Victorian ruby ring features a glowing and lively deep, pinkish red ruby – certified as natural, unheated and of Burmese origin. The centre stone is claw set within a surround of twelve rose cut diamonds, each set in silver closed-backed settings. The finely pierced gallery was originally screwed (not soldered) to the rest of the ring, as evidenced by the screw fitting on the finger bezel. An impressive Victorian treasure.
