A Nineteenth Century Emerald, Ruby, Diamond And Pearl Ring
A mid nineteenth century emerald, ruby, diamond and bouton pearl ring, comprising a claw-set emerald quatrefoil surmounting three bouton pearls in a horizontal row and with a similar claw-set ruby quatrefoil below, all mounted in vertical alignment between triple way split rose diamond set shoulders and a rose gold shank, circa 1860,head measuring 2×2 cm, finger size P, gross weight 5.3 grams.
A fabulously colourful and characterful ring. This ring features a single band that splits out into three bands, the top with a ruby cluster, the middle with three pearls, and the bottom with a cluster of emeralds. The rubies are a lovely vivid crimson, and the pearls are a bright crème de menthe shade, both complementing the creamy central pearls. All three bands are studded with lively rose-cut diamonds. Similar colourful rings can be seen in portraits by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres in the mid nineteenth century.
The finger size of most of our rings can be adjusted and our workshop will be happy to do this free of charge. If you do not know your finger size please request us to post you a finger measure.
