A Late Victorian 15 carat pearl and ruby dress ring with English hallmarks for the year 1885. The ring is essentially a gently tapered band (6mm at the face, tapering to 3mm at the narrowest point), hand engraved with decorative flourishes and set with creamy pearls and dark pink rubies. The pearls - which would have been quite valuable in the 1880s and all hand-matched - are set in a quatrefoil arrangement at the center of the face. They are each tucked inside a tulip-shaped recess - possibly my favorite detail of all the details in this ring. Etched lines divide the pearl section from the rubies, which are gypsy-set in diamond-shaped recessed on either side. Pretty bead and dot etched details. Exceptional condition and fully hallmarked.

Measurements: Size 6.5 US
Era: 1880s (1885)
Markings: Full British hallmarks for 15 carat gold and Birmingham assay in 1885
