Close back setting boasting magnificent workmanship from the Georgian period made of 19 KT gold by testing – not marked as for age
An early Twin Heart ring featuring spectacular natural gemstones on it
Definitely a Natural untreated Burmese origin Ruby of the most vivid red pigeon blood this refers to the most beautiful hue of Burmese Rubies which stands for Love and Passion in the secret language of the time
A pear early cut Diamond rather flat so looks much bigger than its actual size to match the Ruby size; the all surrounded by tiny Diamonds running through the whole crown
Diamond is estimated .80 Ct over mounting, spreads much wider, rated as F/G VS clarity – hardly you see this fine quality of gemstones in early rings
Ruby is an exceptional Burmese .95 CT estimate on mounting superior RED with excellent clarity too
further little 50 in number rose cut Diamonds adding .90 Ct by the spread
Excellent condition for the great age
