A Victorian ruby, sapphire and diamond harem ring, consisting of three bands, the one centrally-set with a ruby, the second with an old-cut diamond and the third with a sapphire, each set between two small old-cut diamonds and rose-cut diamond encrusted shoulders, all mounted in silver and yellow gold, circa 1860, finger size N1/2, gross weight 4.6 grams.

The term harem ring is an example of Victorian England’s fascination with the romance of the Islamic world initially spurred by the French conquest of Algiers in 1830 and later fuelled by the English translation of A Thousand and One Nights by Edward William Lane in 1838.
