An interesting antique mid-Victorian 18 karat yellow gold ruby and diamond ring. With two Old Mine cut diamonds and two mixed cut rubies all claw set, this ring dates from 1866 and was assaying in Birmingham, UK. There is a tiny diamond chip in the centre of the setting to complete the design. A pretty antique pre loved ring that is delicate in appearance and eminently wearable.
