Description


This fine vintage ruby ring has been crafted in 18 ct yellow gold.


The ring displays a feature oval mixed cut synthetic ruby*, collet set in subtle relief to the centre of the design.


The ruby is flanked by two transitional modern brilliant round cut diamonds displayed in rub over settings.


The anterior surface and fully integrated ring shoulders are embellished with a textured pattern, supported and bordered by a simple stepped and curved mount with a plain, polished finish .


The interior of the ring shank is clearly struck with the 18ct gold fineness hallmarks (750 and 18ct).


This vintage gold and synthetic ruby ring is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.


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. It was common practice to incorporate synthetic rubies to impressive pieces of vintage jewellery.


*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.


Condition
