Victorian, 18ct Gold, Ruby and Diamond Five Stone Ring


£7,500
Product SKU: ARB-481

Five stone ruby ring with diamonds. Thailand, much like its neighbour Myanmar (Burma), has a long history of producing excellent rubies, and was a key source of the stones in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Thai rubies have a slightly different character to Burmese specimens - they tend to lack the pink overtones characteristic of Burmese rubies, and instead lean closer to purple and sometimes slightly brownish secondary tones, which gives their reds a rich, sophisticated depth. This ring is set with a sequence of five graduated Thai rubies, of a beautiful, almost wine red, accented at each corner with glittering rose-cut diamonds. (The images present some inclusions which cannot be seen very easily by the naked eye). In classic fashion for five stone rings of this era, it’s mounted in warm yellow gold to complement the red, with lavish hand-carved scrolled galleries and shoulders giving it a luxurious Baroque touch.





 Why I love it...

 

“ This is a particularly special ruby five stone set with five fabulous natural rubies. It’s huge! It is rare to find a quality five stone ring especially one set with rubies – and this one is big and beautiful! The setting is also amazing… the sinuous carved gold scroll gallery is just wonderful.
