Description

This stunning, antique Ostby and Barton ring showcases a vivid, bold, marquis shaped synthetic ruby. Its shoulders feature delicate, petit rose accents. The ring is crafted from solid 10K white gold and was manufactured in the midst of the 20th century by Ostby and Barton.

The Ostby and Barton jewelry design house is well known for manufacturing jewelry of the highest quality, most notably rings. Engelhart Ostby was born in Norway and studied to be a jeweller at the Royal School of Art in his home city. After an education that included six years of apprenticeship he worked as a successful jeweller in Oslo.

He emigrated to America in 1869 and travelled via New York to Providence, Rhode Island. He worked initially for the firm of Hunt & Owen but soon moved to the firm of Arnold & Webster (Later Arnold & Steere) where he acted as head of design and engraving for nine years.

In 1879 he formed a partnership with Nathan B. Barton to create the business of Ostby & Barton. Working from the premises at 25 Potter St. (later called Garnet St.) the firm became the world's biggest producer of gold rings. Lack of space forced the company to move from Potter St. to Clifford St. and the Austin factory building. Soon outgrowing their new premises they again relocated, to the former factory of the Ladd Watch Case Company on the corner of Richmond St. and Clifford St. the building had to be doubled in size to accommodate the burgeoning business. Ostby was a passenger aboard the Titanic and met his end when the infamous ship sank.
