Miss Raspberry Red

Vintage white gold ring with ruby & drop cut diamonds, circa 2000

We liked the ring presented here for its elegant restraint. The design presents an oval ruby accompanied by two drop cut diamonds. Cool white gold sets the stones with a few sturdy claws and lifts them high above the finger, allowing plenty of light to bring the stones to life. Rubies are among the most precious gemstones. One colour in particular is considered a sign of quality: an intense red with a tinge of bluish, known as dove's blood. The ruby in this ring shows this color. It weighs one carat and is very translucent, with only one large inclusion running across the center of the stone; there are other cloud-like inclusions in the side sections. An independent appraisal has confirmed the value of the ruby and the ring's materials. It comes with the ring. We discovered the ring in London. Its pared down, classical design and cool colouring allows us to date it to around 2000. It is in very good condition and a perfect engagement gift in the colour of love.
