Made out of 18K solid gold*, this lovely ring features two pigeon blood rubies of approximately .10ct each and two cream colored pearls. One pearl has been replaced, and it is slightly lighter and smaller than the other original one. But it does not detract from the aesthetic quality of this beautiful ring. Both pearls have high luster and good nacre and are approximately 3mm. Both rubies and pearls are prong set.
One beautiful feature of this Edwardian era ring is its setting. For the rubies and pearls are framed by a square decorated with scrolls. The ring stands 8mm off the finger and the gallery and shank are inspired by the Art Nouveau period of beautiful floral and foliage pattern. This is a beautiful ring and, with the exception of the replaced pearl, it is in excellent condition.
