victorian asymmetrical ruby and diamond 14k gold ring


The Story

A very special ring from the Victorian era, this 14 karat rosy-yellow gold piece is filled with romantic symbolism.  The 3 center stones, traditionally meaning "you, me, us" are stacked asymmetrically in a diagonal line, making it a unique and unusual design.

The top and bottom richly colored old cut rubies flank the 0.40 carat Old Mine Cut diamond in the center.  Set with six yellow gold prongs, each of the three stones is sandwiched between two Old Mine Cut diamonds and four rose cut diamonds, for a total diamond weight of approximately 0.77 carats. 

With its unexpected stacked design and all-over sparkle, this beautiful piece makes for a fantastic right-hand ring as well as a unique engagement ring.
