Victorian Silver Topped 15kt Ruby Diamond Double Heart Ring
An absolutely exquisite diamond and ruby ring from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This breathtaking piece is made of sterling topped 15kt rose gold and has an incredible design. With a very royal appearance, a double heart centerpiece is the main focal point of the ring. The centerpiece has a sterling topped surface detailed with a Pear Cut old European diamond on one side and luscious ruby on the other side. The diamond weighs approximately 0.60ct, with J-K color and VS2 clarity and both center stones are framed by a sparkling diamond border and topped by a bow shaped crown. The band of the ring has a split shoulder with a slightly ridged design along the back. A very unusual and special piece, this lovely ring would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 5.5 scant but could be resized if desired. The double heart centerpiece measures 5/8" tall, is 3/4" wide and has a depth of 1/8".
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no serious damage to the gold and silver setting or to the diamond and ruby stones, all of which are intact. The surface of the silver and gold has some natural patina which adds to the richness of the piece.
