This is an exquisite Victorian Ruby and Diamond ring in 18 carat Gold, Circa 1900.

The Victorian era, so named after Queen Victoria the longest reigning British monarch who ruled from 1837 to 1901, marked an era of prosperity and the rise of industrialisation and the middle class.

This stunning early ring is set with 4 round cut rich red  Burmese Rubies which are amongst 9 lovely sparkling old mined cut Diamonds set in an 18 carat Gold marquise handcrafted mount.

The brilliant round cut Burmese Rubies radiates a beautiful warmth of red colour.  Burmese Rubies are famous for their exceptional colouring.

Early diamond cutters (today known as bruters) shaped old mine cut diamonds by following the octahedral shape of the diamond crystal, laboriously grinding two diamonds together to achieve the desired shape, and a diamond polisher then polished the facets.

Due to the shape of the rough and because the diamonds were hand crafted, dimensions varied from stone to stone.

This made every old mine cut diamond unique, or put poetically, have its own personality.

The overall finish of the ring is wonderful. Everything is smooth to the touch. 

The shank is substantial, yet extremely comfortable to wear.

The condition of this delightful antique ring is excellent for its considerable age.

It is a pretty look on the finger and looks fabulous when worn.
