Palladium is one of those white metals akin to platinum which are used for jewelry. Rare and lustrous, over the years it has grown in popularity.
Circa 1960, this two-tone ring creates wonderful contrast of color employing a ruby of 1.15 carats and four brilliant cut diamonds, total weight of .20 carats (H-I color; SI1-2 clarity).
The oval faceted crimson ruby is a show stopper with its purple-red coloration simply prong set. Flanking the 7.2 by 5.6 by 3.63 mm ruby and set in icy white palladium cartouches, the diamonds shimmer and add just the right touch.
A slender shank of 14k yellow gold, fine azuring and details such as mille grain accenting set this vintage ring apart from others. Perfect for an engagement or a right-hand ring.
