Queen Victoria, arbiter of 19th century fashion as well as monarch of the realm, started a trend for milk tooth jewelry when she had the baby tooth of her eldest daughter, Princess Victoria, mounted in a brooch. This c. 1900 ring features a milk tooth that has been filed into a square shape set between two rubies. One stone was missing when we bought the ring and we were unable to source a stone that matched the original in color in size, so for the sake of color harmony, both stones are replacements.
14k gold (tests), milk tooth, 2 2mm rubies
Very good - the rubies are replacements of the originals
7, can be resized; 8.5mm head, 1.5mm shank
