Like x's and o's or hearts and arrows, red and white just seem romantic together somehow. Natural, easy, and meant to be. Very complimentary, indeed!
I came across this ring while shopping the grounds at Newark, at an antiques market north of London. It seemed so cheery and bright on an otherwise bleak late winter day. This ring is hand made in 18 karat gold and is set with three oval faceted bright red rubies that add up to about .7 carats total and two 4.4 x 3.5 mm oval shaped creamy half pearls. The ring is also accented with 10 wonderfully lively rose cut diamonds, just to add a little glitter and up the quotient of joy! I'm certain that this ring has had a little facelift in the last 50 years or so, it shows signs of re-shanking (the back of the band has been replaced, probably it was too thin, likely it originally had hallmarks that were lost in this) and re-tipping (some of the prongs have been re-done to make the stones more secure), it was quite well done and as a result it is in excellent and quite wearable condition and has a wonderful hefty weight. The crown of this ring is truly lovely with all it's heavily engraved scrollwork. It weighs 3.8 grams and is a size 8.25. It could be re-sized somewhat, I'm always happy to check with my jeweler to see what's possible.
Almost certainly made in England around 1880, this is a gorgeous ring with a romantic feel to it, it would make a fantastic and unusual engagement or wedding ring.
