A Stately Pleasure Dome Ring
In the poem, "Khubla Khan" Samuel Taylor Coleridge certainly had the imagery right: "In a stately pleasure dome decree...” He just did not have the ring to go with it. You, however do with this must have ring of superb natural rubies that dance about the dome in mazy motion. The colors enchant as they tremble with hues of red to pink.
Next to the rubies a lush bed of brilliant cut diamonds all set into 18k yellow gold meander through a valley as rivulets. The base of palladium (a rare metal, not often used in jewelry similar in look to platinum) is an artful choice and could not be more striking. Intermittent light shimmers forth from two side accent diamonds as well.
Floating midway upon the dome are 18 older cut rubies for total estimated weight of 6.5 carats. In addition, the rare device holds seventy-two (72) diamonds, a mix of old European, single and brilliant cuts for a total estimated diamond weight of 2.6 carats.
Measurements: Dome is a hint over 7/8 of an inch (2.4 cm) in length north to south on the hand by 7/8 of an inch (2.3 cm) in width and rises ½ of an inch in height off the finger. Weight of 16.4 grams (10.5 dwt).
Ring Size: US size 4-3/4 (UK I-1/2; 15.5 Dia; 49 mm circumference, Japan 8) and can be easily sized. Ring sizing information.
Hallmarks: “Palladium” on the shank.
Condition: Excellent; a few rubies with light wear.
Date: Circa 1945.
Note: All diamond and gemstone weights are approximate as the stones have not been removed in order to preserve the integrity of the setting.
