Antique Victorian Ruby and Diamond Ring, Gypsy Set in 18k Gold

There’s something sultry about Gypsy rings, a long nights and warm fires sort of feel that surrounds them. Maybe it’s the smoothness of them, the soft as silk feel of them, maybe it’s their subtle beauty. Whatever it is, I’ve always felt that they have ‘it’, that understated star quality.

Hand crafted in 18 karat gold, this beautiful and romantic ring is set with a faceted gypsy mounted (flush set) bright red ruby and two wonderful contrasting cushion cut diamonds. The center stone measures 4.5 x 3.2 x 2.2 mm and weighs approximately .25 carats. Prong set into diamond shapes on either side of the ruby are two lovely and lively old European cushion cut diamonds, weighing .15 carats each, or .3 carats total. The ruby is somewhat included and has a beautiful bright red color kissed with fuchsia. The diamonds are bright and white, clean with a 10x power loupe and both have very small chips from years of wear that are only noticeable with magnification. The ring measures 6.6 mm north to south and 15 mm across, it has a low profile and sits 2.2 mm off the finger, it narrows to 2.4 mm at the back of the band. The ring is a size 6.75 US and could be resized to suit. This ring is marked with an ’18’ for 18 karat gold and a partial makers mark that I can’t quite make out. It weighs 3.8 grams. Made in England around 1880-90.

This lovely 3 stone gypsy ring would make a stunning engagement ring, wedding band or an excellent addition to a ring stack!
