Description

Stylish, Elegant and Timeless Estate Natural Ruby Cocktail, Engagement, Anniversary or Birthstone Ring.

Here we have a one of a kind handmade ring in 14K gold circa 1970 set with gem quality natural red rubies and sparkly diamonds.

This pretty estate natural ruby ring is a custom made dating to the later part of the mid century era.

It is in lovely condition and is ready to gift or to wear.

The ruby and diamond set face of the ring measures approximately 11/16" long and rises 5/16" high ff the finger (16.9mm, 7.8mm).

This quality vintage ruby diamond ring weighs 6.6 grams approximately.

Currently this unique modernist ruby ring is a size 6 1/4 US. It is sizable within a large range so please inquire.

Inside the shank there is a 585 metal fineness stamp for 14K yellow gold. Professional testing confirms the same.

There is 1.92 carats of oval cut gem quality natural rubies set in this pretty ring. With this superb weight of natural rubies this unique ruby ring makes a perfect ruby engagement or ruby anniversary ring!

Four (4) points of diamond accents VS/SI and G in color form the perfect color contrast to the red rubies.

The total ruby and diamond weight here is 1.96 carats.

A comprehensive Appraisal Report shall accompany this unique natural ruby and diamond vintage gold ring.

It shall be sent in a presentation box for safe keeping and ready for gifting.

Today we rarely see this quality and sadly most "handmade" rings are cast then polished but not handmade at all and were manufactured using CAD computer imaging design software with molds printed and cast. Stones can even be cast in place and not even set by hand! That means the stones are likely to be lost and the claws are brittle and uneven. These CAD rings do not have the quality of handmade gold rings and are unlikely to be able to be passed onto future generations but rather will be scrapped because of the porosity of the metal and other factors of casting using this cheap technology. This handmade ring is quality and will stand the test of time. It is an heirloom jewel like no other.

The CAD Technology makes true mid century period rings more than rare...as rare as can be as this technology can scan a photo and cast a reproduction with little labor. The end result has little value as a reproduction and will not stand the test of time. This ring though...this special ruby and diamond ring is of the mid century period a true vintage ring of the period and therefore more desirable, more rare and more valuable.

Unfortunately, in the last two decades many rubies seen in modern jewelry and rubies set as replacements in vintage and antique jewelry have had the color induced by high temperature heating in chemicals such as beryllium. This is called diffusion treatment and includes surface diffusion, bulk diffusion, lattice diffusion and deep diffusion. There are also sapphires treated heavily with beryllium treatment to imitate rubies. In recent years rubies have been clarity enhanced by filling any fissures or cracks with molten lead glass, sometimes the glass is colored as well, with time the filler falls out or goes cloudy ruining the stone. Polymer resins can be used in a similar way. Oftentimes this clarity enhancement may appear on certificates as the note(s) “residues” or “minor residues” or perhaps “foreign substance”. Colored coatings can be applied to the back of a ruby. These treatments are unacceptable and such treated stones are of very low value. We do not sell rubies with these treatments.

The photos form part of the description. Like all colored stones there is a color variation that occurs in different lighting conditions both inside but also outside, even the time of day can make the color of a stone appear a little different. We do our best to show colors as we see them. Color perception is highly individual and some people can perceive more colors than others, also colors can appear somewhat different on different screens and devices due to variations in screen hardware and device display settings.
