These beautiful antique "gypsy" rings are so popular right now, and we can see why! We love the charming star-like settings and the scrolled shoulders, and the over-sized old English hallmarks are a coveted quality for any antique jewellery collector.

This antique 18ct Gold Gypsy ring has a bright old mine cut Diamond center and two deep pigeon-blood Ruby to either side.

The term "Gypsy ring" refers to the way the stones are set, which was very popular during the 1800 and 1900's. 

This beautiful Ruby and Diamond trilogy ring has stood the test of time and as Diamonds and Rubies are among the hardest of gemstones it's suitable for daily wear. It would lend itself well to being worn as any kind of stacking ring; be it a dress ring, wedding band, or even a unique engagement ring

EXCELLENT:  For an item that's 118 years of age this beautiful antique 18ct Gold Ruby and Diamond gypsy ring has aged remarkably well. The gemstones are in excellent condition with no chips or damage, and the Diamond is really bright and lively! The Gold still has a lovely bright yellow shine which we think is simply gorgeous. The band is also in excellent condition and is a great choice for daily wear as a dress ring or wedding band. There is no evidence of previous re-sizing and the hallmarks are nice and crisp, so if you're a collector this ring really hits all the right notes!
