Gorgeous Classic Vintage Ruby Halo Ring
This lovely ring was made circa 1950 and is solid 18k white gold. The design is very pretty with an elegant, ruffle-like halo that surrounds an elongated oval faceted ruby. The ruby is a deep pink with a slightly purple cast...almost magenta in color. It is a naturally strong and gorgeous contrast to the whiteness of the diamonds and gold. And in addition to the ruffle-like lower halo there is a secondary halo that directly frames the ruby. In all there are 28 single cut diamonds involved in the sparkle! The ruby is estimated as +/-.65ct Currently the ring measures as a 6 on the mandrel and can be sized up or down upon request. This would make a stunning engagement ring for anyone who might be looking for an alternative to a diamond. Rubies are a very hard stone which makes them well suited for daily wear.
