Endearing 18K Victorian cluster ring in wonderful condition with 10 diamonds surrounding a large deep red ruby at the center. Hallmarked Chester for the year 1901 and 18K gold, its age and gold content are both guaranteed. The shank is wonderfully unmarred from unfortunate size changes as so often happens with antique rings. The ruby is the ideal deep red color of a natural ruby. Rubies have been prized since antiquity for their dichroic quality as well as their hardness level (second to diamonds) and are the birthstone for the month of July. A perfect gift for your July born partner. The ring is a US size 10.
