Stunning Vintage Cabochon Ruby and Diamond Ring in 18k Gold

     Do you remember that red sequined dress that Kate Capshaw wore in 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom'? You know the one, right? They were in Club Obi Wan (get it?) in Shanghai. Indy in that fabulous white tux and Willie Scott in that slinky red dress with the gold sequins and Mandarin collar. Don't you think that this ring would have been perfect for that scene? It would be brilliant with that dress. Not that it doesn't feel right at home with jeans and a tee shirt, mind you!

     An oval cabochon cut ruby of the most utterly fantastic blood red is the star of this show. This ruby measures 8.2 mm across and 6.8 mm north to south and is 4.6 mm deep for an estimated weight of 2.8 carats. This natural stone has wonderful clarity and is the most gorgeous color. It is set into an 18 karat gold mounting with four prongs and the mount sparkles and glows with even the slightest movement as it is set with 36 brilliant cut diamonds that add up to about 2 carats in total diamond weight. The diamonds are of excellent quality and the craftsmanship is very high on this one! The ring is inscribed inside the band with the date: '15.1.75' European for the 15th of January, 1975. The face of the ring is 8.5 mm from north to south and sits 8.3 mm off the finger, it tapers to 2.8 mm at the back of the band. This ring is a size 7 and could be resized somewhat to suit, it weighs 6.5 grams. It is unmarked (other than the inscription) and has been acid tested to verify that it is 18 karat gold. Made in Europe (likely in France, that's where I purchased it) around 1975.

     This ring might not get you Harrison Ford, but Indy, well, that's a different story altogether.
