Antique Early Victorian Ruby and Pearl Ring, Hallmarked 1848

Have you ever heard a loud silence? The combustible kind? The kind where two people madly in love say no words yet communicate all of them at the same time? That’s the kind of peace they had. At 5 am he would roll over in his sleep and mumble her name and she would giggle, every time, glad to know it was her he was dreaming of. Over oysters and sweet red wine they might comment out loud about the taste of the citrus notes in their drinks or the salt flavors in their food, but the important things, those things they told each other with their electric eyes. When he gave her this ring neither one spoke a sound. Her hand went from her side to her chest in awe, before taking his hand, and he slipped the pearls and rubies on her finger with the other hand. He tilted his head to watch happiness take over her face, and at the same time, bliss took over his. 

This wonderful Georgian ruby and pearl ring was handcrafted in Birmingham, England in 1823. Hot pink oval rubies are the stars of this ring, five in all. They are graduated in size measuring from 2.5 x 2.1 mm up to 3.2 x 2.2 mm. Alongside the rubies are eight gray tinted pearls measuring 2.0 mm in diameter, giving this ring a unique and pretty feel. The shoulders of the ring boast a floral design. This ring is fully hallmarked with the number ‘15’ indicating the gold content of 15 karat, the number ‘6.’, an anchor indicating it was created in Birmingham, and the letter year code ‘z’ for the year of manufacture, 1848. The face of this ring measures 8.2 mm from north to south, and 12.8 mm from east to west. It is 3.5 mm deep. It is a size 5.5 and weighs 2.4 grams, we’d be happy to re-size it for you upon request.
