Antique Victorian Ruby Diamond Checkerboard Ring 0.68ct Ruby


A fabulous antique Victorian checkerboard cluster ring dotted with five cherry-pink rubies (approx. 0.68ct) and five bright old mine cut diamonds with VS1 clarity – I colour (approx. 0.65ct). The stones are arranged in a fabulous alternating pattern, like a checkerboard, with four smaller diamonds nestled in between.

Ruby is the birthstone of July and has long been associated with the heart due to its fiery pink/ red colouring which is symbolic of passion. It’s said to bring good fortune in love and provide long-lasting happiness and vitality to any relationship. 

The piece is modelled entirely in 18ct gold with detailed, scroll engraving carved down the sides and shoulders. It’s a dazzling piece, dating to the late 19th Century with a gorgeous collection of precious gems that contrast and complement each other perfectly.
