Victorian Diamond Ruby Ring Gold

It was a beautiful sparkling diamond and ruby ring that sat on her finger like a crown. She wore it in a ballroom with fancy-clothed women and well-clad gentlemen who would, on occasion, ask her to dance. She was encircled by a group of giggling friends as she absentmindedly twirled the stray hairs that escaped the pinned back hairstyle she wore. Around the third dance a man in a silk puff tie and laced-up boots bee-lined toward her, taking her by surprise. He was nervous, and she could tell when his eye caught the glimmer of her ring as she touched her hair. He took a breath and asked her for the next dance. She grinned and accepted his invitation.

This antique Victorian diamond and ruby gold ring was handcrafted in Birmingham, England, in 1885. At the center sits a round deep pink ruby, measuring 3.8 x 3.8 x 2.4 mm and weighing approximately .25 carats. On each side of the ruby are two diamonds, four in total, each Old European cut, weighing a total of approximately .46 carats. This beautiful piece is a size 7 and it weighs 3.1 grams. The ring face measures 6 x 16 x 3.5 mm off the finger. It has been fully hallmarked and bears the crown mark, the gold purity mark, “18”, the anchor mark for Birmingham, the date letter (l) for 1885, and the maker’s mark, “W.G”.
