Story

For over two hundred years, this wondrous ruby and diamond jewel has maintained its considerable allure for all to envy.

In three parts (a ubiquitous design style for the 18th century) this example should be noted for its wearable size, exceptional condition, fine rubies and sheer overall beauty.

Unusually smaller in scale than many, weighty showy jewels of the period, fall in love with the open, airy design that utilizes 14k gold, touches of silver holding the diamonds and gemstones and flower motifs to add lyrical grace.

Six rubies are set into rub over, closed backed silver settings. These bezels are types that spread the precious metal almost like butter of the sides and parts of the top sides of the rubies.

This technique flourished during the 18th century, then gave way to other settings often with open backs. The five diamonds are set with this method as well, four of which includes bases of gold many-petaled flowers.

A dangle at the bottom rests a pear-shaped diamond with gold flourishes. With a gold up or down bale, it is accompanied by a modern rolo chain of 14k gold.

Rubies total .90 carats, both round and cushion cuts. Diamonds total .75 carats in an old mine cut, rose cut and rose pear cuts.
