Description

No gemstone has been so often associated with passionate love in history and the arts as the ruby. It was its color that drew Robert Herrick to compare it to the rosy mouth of his beloved Juliet. Oscar Wilde also compared the red of the ruby to the color of the heart itself in his art fairy tale "The Nightingale and the Rose," and William Blake spoke of the "rubies and pearls" of the loving gaze. The large ruby at the center of the present ring is surrounded by rays of other rubies, shaped in a carré cut and appearing to be set almost seamlessly. This technique was already known in the early 20th century, when it is also called calibrated gemstones. Today it is rarely found. The ruby rays, in turn, are embedded in brilliant-cut diamonds in yellow gold, which fill the oval of the ring face. The ring is very well preserved and wears pleasantly solid thanks to its massive construction.
