A Victorian Burmese ruby and diamond ring, featuring five antique cushion cut rubies totalling 3.30ct and eight old cut diamonds. Five stone rings are said to represent the five qualities of a good relationship: love, commitment, trust, communication and empathy. They became increasingly popular in the Victorian period when it became fashionable to wear multiple rings on each hand. This was influenced by Queen Victoria and her royal relatives, who dictated styles and tastes to the Empire at large. Burma, or Myanmar, is a country that is renowned for its deposits of extraordinary gemstones. These five rubies display the much sought after deep red colour tone, and come from the famous Mogok mines which are now largely exhausted. Small old cut diamonds have been expertly set in between the statement stones to complete the design. Historically, the diamond symbolised love and prosperity, while the ruby represented passion and devotion. A sentiment that still rings true today. The richly polished openwork yellow gold mount displays rich scrollwork patterns which enable the maximum amount of light to enter and exit the stones.
Victorians loved anything bestowed with meaning and this was particularly true for jewellery. The 'Romantic' period of this era represented a time of marital bliss for Queen Victoria.
