Striped beauty

Victorian ruby & diamond ring in gold, Birmingham, dated circa 1892

Six vibrant pink rubies and just as many radiant diamond roses have gathered here to form a magnificent design. The precious stones are arranged alternately in vertical stripes. According to the hallmark, the ring was created in 1892 in the English city of Birmingham. The pleasure in geometry that we can observe here already refers to the great currents of modernism, graphic Art Nouveau and Art Deco. At the same time, however, the joy of luxurious furnishings and the rich, warm colors of the piece are quite typical children of the late Victorian era. Quite easily, we can imagine the garden parties, horse rides, and tea parties to which this ring could already add a shining touch of beauty. The ring itself is made of high karat yellow gold. The ring band on the sides next to the rich trim is understated and elegant. The ring came to us from Minden and pleases with its unusual design!
