Belle Époque ruby and diamond ring, circa 1910. This ring owes its amazing lightness of construction to platinum, which started to be widely used by jewellers at the beginning of the 20th century. Resembling a flower or the spokes of a wheel, the fine construction in platinum wirework is set with a beautiful cushion-shaped ruby, and a ring of sparkling antique circular and rose-cut diamonds, to a simple gold band. With its strong yet refined design, this ring is a rare and beautiful survival from an age of unparalleled elegance.
Why I love it...
"This is such a pretty ring. Mesmerised by the craftmanship, you can just admire it for hours. Each stone is beautifully set in platinum – they don’t make pieces like this anymore!"
