A very pretty natural ruby and diamond ladies ring .
The setting is arranged to mimic the bandeau head pieces which ladies would wear during the Art Deco era. Sometimes these headpieces would have a feather artfully adorning it.
The rectangular step cut natural rubies are set in 14 k (hallmarked 585) yellow gold. The central ruby sits higher than the side rubies.
The rubies are estimated in the setting as 3.5 mm x 2.5, 3 x 2 (2) and 2.5 x 2 (2). Total gemstone weight is approximately 0.72 carats.
12 of the diamonds are bead set in square collars of 14 k white gold. They are sitting on stalks which create a "lace" appearance. These diamonds are estimated as 0.005 carats each.
A further 4 diamonds are set, 2 at each end, of the rubies. These are claw set in 14 k white gold.
The total diamond weight is estimated as 0.07 tdw.
The total effect is delicate and very appealing.
