What a wonderful ring this is. I have seen a few dearest rings where stones have been removed and replaced, but the best I can tell, this one has its original stones and was always meant to be a dearest ring. The band is unmarked but tested 18 carat gold. We have a Diamond (D), Emerald (E) Amethyst (A) Ruby (R)Emerald (E) Sapphire (S), and (T) topaz. The ring is a size 5 and 3/4, but could be resized by someone used to working with antique jewelry. This ring is circa 1860, and is in excellent condition. The stones are foiled and close backed as they were in Victorian times, and while we can't weigh and measure antique stones the same way we weigh and measure modern stones, these are nice sized genuine stones. The center stone, the ruby, is approximately the size of a modern half carat stone. The rest of the stones are graduated in size. The ring weighs 1.9 grams, and the part with the stones measures 1/4 of an inch wide. Note: I was looking at the rings in my stock, typed in the stock number of this one, and was amazed to find, that, while I have had this ring since 2012, it has never been on my site. It does fit my finger, and I am sure, in the back of my mind, I meant to keep it for myself. While I can wear it, I need to wet my finger now to get it over my knuckle, which has , alas, just gotten larger in the last year. That has affected the wearing of several of my antique rings on my ring finger, because I do not want to force them over the knuckle. This ring is a real treasure, It would look nice worn with another ring with a solitaire stone, and it is still priced at its 2012 price.
