Antique Victorian 18ct Yellow Gold Ruby And Pearl Navette Ring - 1876

Collections: Sold Archive

Superb Victorian ring crafted from 18ct yellow gold and fully hallmarked for Birmingham and date stamped for 1876.

A 19th century beauty with the quality we expect during this era and designed as a Navette shaped ring set with a horizontal row of natural old cut round Rubies, all bead claw set, to a surround or fourteen half Pearls (would be natural as cultured Pearls first used in 1893).

A slightly raised gallery displays a fancy inverted arch open work to split ribbed shoulder and a thick half round shank.

Stunning, feminine, low to the finger, and in incredible condition, this exquisite ring is a pleasure to wear and lights up a room when ever she is seen!
