victorian ruby cabochon, diamond, and 14k gold ring


The Story

A beautiful antique diamond ring from the Victorian era, centering around a glowing ruby cabochon. The high polish finish of the cabochon makes the stone feel like a piece of candy.

The setting is open in the back allowing light to pour through, making the stone pop. Surrounding the juicy ruby are twelve rose cut diamonds ranging in size from 2 mm to 2.5 mm. The center cluster is made from 14k yellow gold topped silver and set on a 14k yellow gold band.

Measuring 0.58 inches tall, it's a great size and shape, not too big or too small. It would make a lovely engagement ring, but it's unique look and style make it perfect for any occasion.
