This fine Regency style antique Ruby & Diamond ring is a beautiful example of fine and elegant antique jewellery.
We've described the ring as Regency style rather than Georgian, as it appears to split the opinion of many experienced antique jewellery specialists! Some think it as authentic Georgian piece that has had a new band added, whilst the half think it's more in-keeping with the Edwardian era, and is more likely a Georgian inspired piece made at the turn of the twentieth century.
It's crafted from high purity 18ct Gold and Silver and set with 12 dainty mixed and Rose cut Diamonds. At its center lies a gorgeous estimated 0.50ct natural Ruby of the most gorgeous deep pink colour, surrounded in a delicately crimped Gold setting.
The ring has a floral design, almost like an Italian "Giardinetti" ring, and we can see quite clearly its maker was inspired by nature.
It's a fairly large ring, measuring 2cm from top to bottom, but is extremely feminine and lady-like despite its size.
A completely unique and rare item of antique jewellery that would make a welcome addition to any jewellery box- collectors and novices alike!

This rare Regency style antique Ruby & Diamond ring is in fantastic condition for its age, and is ready to wear and enjoy straight away! All of the precious gemstones are original antique and free from any damage. The pretty Rose cut Diamonds are beautifully faceted and the Ruby is of a fine colour and clarity. The gems are all secure in their settings and the ring is structurally sound. There is a little wear to the facet edges of the Ruby looking through a x10 magnification loupe, as you would expect of a genuine antique ring, but to the eye the gem has lovely shiny facets and a wonderful pink-red sparkle! All in all an exceptional piece of history that you can wear with pride.
