This is an absolutely charming Retro ruby and diamond ring, capturing all the elements in this single, petite piece: rose gold, rubies, diamonds and a Retro flair to the design.
Set with synthetic rubies surrounding a single brilliant cut diamond, the use of synthetic rubies was not uncommon in the jewelry of the 1940's. In fact, since synthetic rubies, sapphires and emeralds were first made and introduced in 1875, they have accented and adorned jewelry in every period since.
It is the size and scale of this lovely ring that is so unusual. The top design measures 12mm to 18mm (at the widest point, at the end of the flair detail). It is a size 2.5, perfect for a pinkie ring or for the small, delicate sized finger.
This particular ring charms with a lot of life and presence. It is fashioned in 14k rose gold, as marked, and weighs 3.7 grams.
