In the Victorian era, every gemstone was used thoughtfully to imply a deeper meaning: rubies signified passion, and diamonds, faithfulness. This showstopper cluster ring dates to the late Victorian period with five rubies of graduated sizes (three center rubies are replacements) smoldering within a halo of diamonds - all rose cuts with the exception of one single cut replacement. The cluster is shaped to hug the finger and sits atop a low, scalloped gallery.
14k yellow gold (tests), 2 .08ct rubies, 2 .25ct rubies, 1 .30ct ruby, 30 accent diamonds (29 rose cuts 1 single cut)
Very good- three center rubies and single cut diamond are all replacement stones
