A beautiful estate ruby and diamond ring! Made of 18k yellow and white gold, the ring bears a crisp set of English hallmarks, dating the ring to year 2007 and London provenance.
The elegant ring comprises of three natural emerald-cut rubies and four smaller natural diamonds which sparkle in between the rubies. The emerald-cut rubies are refreshing to see in this ring, as emerald-cut earth mined rubies are a rarity... especially over the 1.00 carat mark! The centre ruby weighs approximately 1.15 carats, and the side rubies weigh approximately 0.94 carats, collectively. The rubies display lovely mid-red hue's with subtle purple hints and are relatively clean (VS) clarity stones of Thai type material. One of the smaller side rubies are Mong Hsu type (stable treatment) and display a subtle pink tinge, though difficult to see the colour variation to the naked eye. Two round brilliant-cut fine white diamonds dazzle in between the rubies, the four diamonds collectively weighing 0.16 carats (est).
The stones rest in a white gold top plate with the rubies set in bezel style settings, and the diamonds in beaded settings in-between. There is a milgrain edge along the entire white gold setting adding a gorgeous vintage touch to this distinct ring! Furthermore a detailed open scalloped gallery accents the undercarriage of the ring, giving further vintage charm. On the finger, the ring sits relatively low and wraps nicely across the top of the finger, making it suitable for everyday wear. Raised open 'V' shoulders with grooved lines flank each side forming into a 2mm wide smooth shank. Inside the shank bears English hallmarks, giving the ring it's origin.
Upon sale, the estate ring would accompany a photographic valuation certificate for insurance purposes, carried out independently by a registered NCJV/FGAA valuer. The estimated retail replacement value of the ring today would be $10,235 AUD.
The finger size of the ring measures N & 1/2 (Aus & UK) or 7 (USA).
A spectacular ruby and diamond ring. A timeless style which would make a gorgeous engagement ring, anniversary ring, or birthstone ring. Ruby is the July birthstone.
