A ruby from Vienna

Vintage gold band ring with ruby & diamonds, Vienna circa 1950

Band rings with simply set gemstones are among the most beloved pieces of jewelry, not least because they are particularly uncomplicated to wear. In their simple yet impressive form, they have remained popular since the 19th century because they do not pull threads on clothing and are pleasant companions for ladies and gentlemen alike for almost all activities. This vintage ring from around 1950 is a fine example of such a piece of jewellery. The solid band ring of slightly reddish gold is set with an arrangement of two diamonds and a red ruby, without any further ornamentation distracting from the beauty of the stones. It is a goldsmith's work that can be traced back to Vienna thanks to a stamp in the ring's band. Two diamonds and a natural ruby in gleaming gold in a hand-forged Viennese ring that is uncomplicated to wear every day - what more could you want?
