Today we are happy to offer for sale a beautiful antique Victorian/Edwardian period 14k yellow gold ring with a beautiful large ruby. This stone measures approximately 1 3/4 carats and is, we believe to be an early example of a lab-created stone. Rubies were the first lab created stones, developed in the late 1800s, stones which share virtually all chemical, optical, and physical characteristics of their natural mineral counterpart but lack the inclusions which are normally found in natural stones. The stone is quite large and is a beautiful deep pinkish cranberry red color. The solitaire setting sits up quite high from the rest of the ring, showing the stone to its best advantage. The prongs and setting itself are made of white gold while the remainder of the ring is 14k yellow gold. The sides of the ring are engraved with a pretty graduated leaf pattern, increasing in size as it nears the stone. Marked on the band “14K” and an indecipherable maker’s mark. Ring presents beautifully and is in very good antique condition, with very minimal wear and patina commensurate with age. There are expected light surface scratches on the stone which can be detected only under magnification. This is a gorgeous, very rare, special ring which will be the centerpiece to any jewelry collection! Fresh to the market from a Rhode Island estate!
