Ruby and diamond ring, circa 1900. With beautifully proportioned unheated deep lively red ruby at its heart, this elegant fin-de-siècle ring shows all the lightness and grace of the Belle Epoque, with two rows of cushion-shaped diamonds in delicate millegrained borders at the border and elegantly scrolled shoulders giving it the slightest hint of Art Nouveau poetry. Its open work construction means that its settings are not too heavy, allowing the stones room to shimmer without being dominated by metalwork, and the design cleverly lies low against the hand, making it comfortable to wear and protecting the stones set within it.
