SOLD Early 20th Century Ruby 5 Stone Ring
A pretty ring from the early 20th Century, circa 1915-20. The ring has five marquise shaped rubies set on the diagonal that cover the top of the finger. The rubies have the lovely pink shade that you associate with this gemstone. The ring has very pretty shoulders with little buckle motifs on each side.
The buckle came to symbolize strength and loyalty and, coupled with the pink color of the rubies, this ring could have been given as a love token. The ring is 18kt gold and stacks beautifully with other rings or could be worn alone.
