Untreated Ruby and Diamond Ring, Antique French c. 1910

She wore rubies. Not diamonds, no nothing as pedestrian as that. Not sapphires, for though they had appeal she knew in her heart of hearts that she was a rare gem indeed and only the most rare and sought after was good enough for her. So, she sought out that most elusive castle in the air, the pure and untreated ruby. This was her ring. 

Made in France during the Edwardian era c. 1910. Hand crafted in Platinum, with a 18 karat gold bezel set natural Ruby. This ring is marked with the French Dog’s head mark (platinum) and has also been acid tested to verify the metals.
