The ring has a very good quality strong 18ct yellow gold band with a lovely antique patina to the gold around to the most fabulous marquise setting measuring over a quarter of an inch wide by over threequarter inches long with a beatiful pierced galliered setting. Inset are three large real rubys & bordered by twenty real diamonds. The rubys are real natural mined rubys all in a rubbed over type claw setting with the central ruby being the largest & the two either side being around the same size and they are all circular & faceted with the two smaller ones being 0.15ct each and the largest 0.40cts so in total there is approx 0.70cts of rubys with their lovely pink/purple colour and natural markings. The diamonds are all natural mined diamonds and they are all old rose cut and all around the same size of 2-3 pointers so in total there is approx 0.40-0.60cts and they are in a rubbed over type claw setting, all well matched but each one individual as you would expect with this cut and this ring truly shimmers & sparkles with quality. The ring is very clearly hallmarked for 18ct gold and has a crown hallmark & makers of J.W and ring size M and a half to N and dates very clearly to the victorian period and as such the band is slightly misshapen and some of the gemstones have nibbles & lines and wear to the facetes as you would expect with age & wear, and the edge of the central ruby looks to have a chip piece out of the edge, but this is very hard to see but nothing that detracts, see pics and make your own mind up. However this really is the most beautiful victorian marquise ring in very good origional complete condition, that looks so beautiful worn, most certainly will not disapoint in any way and quite a breathtaking rare example of these and this ring would be very expensive in a high street jewellers. Please note the photos do not do this ring justice at all. I love antique jewellery, so hope that you to can appreciate my items, that have been pre loved with history.
