Wonderful vintage Art Deco Retro Moderne 14k rose gold and platinum ruby and diamond ring, size 5. Very elegant and streamlined. Features four square cut faceted genuine rubies and three round single cut diamonds. Measures 7/16" in width, band tapers to 3.5mm at the back of the ring shank, weighs 5.1 grams. The four rubies have lovely well saturated color and each measure 2.5mm x 1.5mm (.10 ct each, .40 ct tw). The three diamonds each measure 1.7mm in diameter (.02 each, .06 ct tw) and have good clarity and color. The ring is marked on the inside of the ring shank "Platinum 14K". The ring itself is 14k rose gold while the diamonds are mounted into platinum. In excellent condition with one condition issue to note, under magnification one of the rubies has a corner chip under the center prong. These are all the original gems to this mounting and no repairs or modifications have ever been made to the ring. The chip cannot be seen under 5x magnification but can be seen under 10x magnification. It of course, is not eye visible. A beautiful piece that would make a great every day ring to wear. Ruby is the birthstone for the month of July. Art Deco/Retro Moderne circa 1940 to 1950. The rubies show no florescence in either long wave or short wave Ultra Violet light, and show internal structure compatible with natural (genuine not lab created) gems.
