Stunning Vintage Ruby and Diamond Cluster Engagement Ring, 18k Gold and Platinum

You asked and I listened! At a recent auction I purchased an auction lot of spectacular rings from the 1970's and 80's. These more contemporary rings are beautifully hand made and feature top quality gems. I do love my antiques, but at heart I'm still a girly girl and I have to admit that all these flashing gems did leave me a bit star struck!

This one features a fabulously bright ruby of approximately .9 carats. The stone has a nice pigeon blood color. The stunning ruby is surrounded by 10 round brilliant cut diamonds, each weighs about .12-.15 carats and the total is about 1.25 carats, they are very white and clean diamonds. The stones are set into a platinum mounting and backed with 18 karat gold. The contrast is fabulous, this is a ring for a girly girl, the diamonds are full of life, flashy and sparkly, the ruby draws the eye with it's glowing red fire.

The platinum mounting has no marks, the back is marked for 18 karat gold, it has also been carefully acid tested. It is a size 8 and could be easily re-sized. It weighs 5.1 grams. Made around 1980. A classic cluster style ring, nothing goes better with a manicure and a Martini.
