This is an ORIGINAL ANTIQUE RING that was made in the VICTORIAN PERIOD around c1880. It is HANDMADE from 14K and STERLING SILVER TOPPED. The ring is set with approx. 5 CARATS OF ROSE CUT DIAMONDS! There are 7 on the top that have a spread or .60 - .85 ct. each. These diamonds have a grayish color, which is common for antique rose cut diamonds from this period, and they have BEAUTIFUL SPARKLE! There are 8 more rose cut diamonds set in the shoulders of the ring.
The ring is framed with 28 NATURAL RED RUBIES that are ROUND OLD MINE CUTS weighing approx. 1.40 ctw. The shank has fine detailing all the way around. The setting underneath has a HEART PATTERN going around the edge. There is one tiny flaw in the gold (see photo of back side) and the gold has a patina that I have not touched. I will leave that to the new owner to decide if they want it polished. The head of the ring has a darkened finish around the diamonds. The head measures almost 15/16" in diameter and it sits 5/16" high off the finger. The ring fits approx. a size 6.5 to 6.75 finger and the total weight is 8.9 grams. This ring you really need to see in person, I feel I am not capturing all its beauty in the photos. A VERY RARE FIND...GORGEOUS DETAIL, SPARKLE & COLOR COMBINATION...I JUST LOVE THIS RING!

*A NOTE ABOUT OUR PHOTOGRAPHY – Taking pictures of diamonds to be displayed on a computer screen can be difficult, often resulting in the diamonds looking dark (especially rose cut diamonds) when in reality they are not. If you are looking at any of our pictures and feel that the diamonds look dark, please refer to the description of the item that states the accurate color and clarity of the stones.
Also, jewelry and/or diamond grading is done under 10X magnification. When you super-size our photos you will see the item in 100X magnification. Please be aware that you may see things that cannot be seen with your eyes or a jeweler’s loupe. Sometimes these images can make the item look distorted or appear to have problems when in reality it is fine. I list only high quality pieces and avoid those with problems or in need of repair unless it is described as such in the listing.

The item must be promptly returned in its original condition without damage, alteration, repair or signs of wear when examined under a 10x jewelers loupe.
