Antique Edwardian Ruby Diamond Cluster Ring, 18k Gold

He did it in the traditional way. He started by asking her dad for permission. Then he made sure his reservation at her favorite restaurant was booked. He seemed casual, on this warm Saturday night. They sat at their preferred table and she took off her velvet jacket as the band started to play across the room. He excused himself for a moment, claiming to need to make a phone call. Really, he was checking with the host to make sure the band was about to play their song. He ran off to change into a suit, and to rehearse his speech, one last time. She was just starting to wonder what kind of phone call he was making that was taking so long, but then he appeared, with a grin. She noticed his outfit change and looked at him, so confused. He bent down onto his knee and told her of his love, his ideal life, and how it all had her in it. He showed her the ring and he asked her the question. She said yes. Right away the servers walked over with bouquets of red roses and a bottle of champagne. Happiness might not be in a ring, but a ring can most certainly symbolize a moment of bliss.  

This is an antique ring made in England around 1905. It was handcrafted in 18 karat gold, and features 10 diamonds surrounding one ruby, all belcher set, all light-catching. It’s a cluster style ring with each diamond measuring approximately 1.4 mm in diameter. The center ruby is 1.6 x 2 x 1.5 mm. The face of this piece measures 11.3 x 7.7 x 4.6 mm. It bears English hallmarks, the crown symbol for England and 18 karat gold. It also has the letter year code, ‘l’, but it’s laking it’s city code so we can’t be sure of the year. This ring is a size 5 and weighs 2.3 grams. 

For an engagement ring she’ll brag about forever or a gift to show her your love, this diamond and ruby ring is perfection.
