With I first saw this ring, I was struck with the beauty of the rubies. Their color is just wonderful. This band is 14 ct gold, and has a mark on the bottom of the band which I believe to be a french mark. It consists of 7 beautiful rubies which are just stunning. The ring is a size 7 and 1/2 to 7 and 3/4, and it weighs 3.11 grams.The largest of the rubies measures 1/4 inch North to South. This ring is late Victorian, ca 1900.
