A 2.20ct oval cut Burmese ruby captivates as the centrepiece of this stunning ring from the Victorian period. This beautiful gemstone has been securely claw set into warm 18ct yellow gold, and surrounded by a border of sparkling old cut diamonds set into silver. Before the appearance of platinum the lustre of silver was used to showcase the best diamonds. Closed back settings ensure the central ruby and diamonds would come alive when worn in the soft candlelight of the period. A plain richly polished shank perfectly completes this classic design, which ensures that all eyes are drawn towards the impressive and rare central ruby. During the Victorian period 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 rubies and other fine gemstones. Showcasing rich and vibrant tones this rare and sought after example is accompanied by certification from the American Gemmological Laboratories (AGL) to confirm that a prestigious Burmese origin, and that it has not been subjected to any heat treatment to improve its colour
