Victorian 18kt/Sterling Silver Ruby and Diamond Checkerboard Ring

SKU: 46707


A very unusual ring from the Victorian (ca1880s) era! This unique ring is crafted in 18kt gold and sterling silver, displaying a striking checkerboard motif decorating the large rectangular centerpiece. The sparkling mixed rose and mine cut diamonds and luscious rubies line the grid, resting in a shared micro prong setting. The stones alternate down the centerpiece, with the rubies set in gold and the diamonds in silver, and the corners of each stone are decorated by additional tiny diamonds. The eye catching design is completed by a smoothly polished, tapered band which is marked with French import marks, including an owl gold mark and a swan silver mark. Perfect for the serious antiques collector or any jewelry lover, this amazing ring is quite a unique treasure!

Measurements: The ring has a finger size 5.75 but could be easily resized. The centerpiece measures just over 3/4" long and 1/2" wide, and the tapered band measures 1.8mm wide at the back.

Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. There is no apparent damage to the gold or silver setting. All of the diamonds are rubies are intact and securely set.
