This enchanting ring puts the Belle in Belle Époque. Incredible lacy garlands of vines and flowers are set with 50 (50!) diamonds surrounding the beating heart of this ring, a rich red ruby. A generous scalloped oval of platinum-toppped 18k yellow gold is pierced with an opulent Neoclassical design, accented by glittering engraved detail. 3.52tcw of little old European cut diamonds spangle the platinum. A 0.79ct oval ruby nestles in a basket of bright 18k gold petals at the center of the ring. The underside of the ring is nearly as stunning as the top, with a raised gold wire gallery that curves around the finger. This jewel is completed with a graceful cathedral style band. She is definitely the prettiest girl at the ball, ask her to dance before her card is filled. Circa 1900.
