0.82ct Diamond and Synthetic Ruby, 18ct Yellow Gold Ring - Antique Circa 1910


An impressive antique 0.82 carat diamond and synthetic ruby, 18 carat yellow gold dress ring; part of our antique gemstone jewellery collections

SKU A5558

This impressive synthetic antique ruby ring has been crafted in 18ct yellow gold.

The feature claw set synthetic ruby* displayed to the centre of the multi-claw 18ct yellow gold setting, is flanked by four Old European round cut diamonds.

The plain ring shoulders blend smoothly with the plain 18ct yellow gold shank.

This impressive ring is supplied with an IDGL diamond grading report card.

This fine ruby ring has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 18ct gold.

NOTE * In 1837 Gaudin made the first synthetic rubies by fusing potash alum at a high temperature with a little chromium as a pigment. Natural rubies and synthetic rubies look very similar on general observation. Synthetic rubies have a different internal colour banding and crystal structure which can only be identified under specific test conditions.

*NOTE: Contrary to what many people may think, the word "synthetic" does not mean fake when it comes to gemstones. In order for a material to be called "synthetic" it must have a natural counterpart. A synthetic ruby will have the same chemical composition as a natural ruby and therefore have an almost identical appearance to the naked eye.

The first ruby formed by melting two smaller rubies together was in 1817, and the first microscopic crystals created from alumina in a laboratory in 1837.

Common practice was to set and enhance fine quality antique jewellery with vibrant and colourful synthetic stones.

Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.
