Vintage Art Deco Ruby and Diamond Engagement Ring, Hallmarked 1930

I find the ruby to be a fascinating stone. Born in the heart of a volcano, some ancient cultures believed that they were imbued with internal fire upon their creation. More rare than their sapphire and emerald cousins, rubies have long been associated with Royalty and affairs of the heart.

This ring is set with three stunningly bright natural red rubies kissed with plum. All are quite clean and clear and intense. The rubies are round faceted stones and the center stone weighs about .4 carats while the two smaller rubies are about .2 carats each for a total weight of about .8 carats. In between each of the rubies are two old European cut diamonds for extra glitz and glamour. Each diamond is about .05 carats and very clean. The ring is marked with the hallmark indicating that it was made in Birmingham, England in 1930, it also bears the makers mark 'S.H.' and the number '22' indicating it is crafted in 22 karat gold. This ring is currently a size 7.5 but could be easily re-sized by a skilled jeweler. The ring weighs 3.9 grams.

A fantastic ring, this beauty would make a superb and very unusual engagement ring! A rare gem of a ring for a rare gem of a lady.
