I was on holiday in the Alps, on the Swiss side. I’m not much of a skier, but I like the cliffside restaurants that overlooked the snowy ledges and small mountain towns below. I was enjoying a mug of hot chocolate as I stood at the balcony watching the skiers and tourists move about. A couple in their younger years came up to me and introduced themselves. They insisted they could see my ring from below, sparkling amidst the sun and snow. Who am I to argue?
This antique Victorian ruby and diamond cluster gold ring was handcrafted in Chester, England, around 1890. It features three dark pink round rubies which play point, counterpoint with a glow-in-the-dark diamond cluster surrounding the center stone. The halo consists of eight round Old European Cut stones. The rubies weigh approximately .56 carats total and the diamonds weigh approximately .45 carats total. The ring face measures 12 x 17 x 5.5 mm off the finger and the band width is 2.3 grams. This piece has been hallmarked and bears the crown mark for England, the wheat sheaves mark for Chester, and the gold purity mark, “18” for 18 karat gold. This ring is a size 8 and weighs 5.0 grams.
This is a flashy, dazzling ring for a flashy dazzling woman, to be worn out and about, dressed up and dressed down.
