Antique Tiara Ring with Ruby & Diamonds in Gold, circa 1905

In the early 20th century, goldsmiths sought and found new forms. One of these new forms was a type of ring that allowed the band to swing out to a point in the middle and present one gemstone above this point, but several below. The resulting composition often resembles a tiara, and indeed similar pieces are often referred to as tiara rings. The present ring also corresponds to this type of tiara ring. It features a ruby and four diamonds in 14-karat rose gold. The diamonds are shaped in the historic rose cut. The ring is beautifully preserved. It is also suitable as an engagement ring, as the materials were once understood as a meaningful allusion to the union of two lovers: the red ruby was supposed to signify passionate love, while the diamond was considered a symbol of eternity due to its hardness.
