It seems every year, the dating of the earliest forms of jewelry recedes further back into deep history. Evidence has been uncovered linking possibly jewelry made from the claws of white eagles, to the Neanderthals over 130,000 years ago.
No wonder jewelry resonates with so many of us. Adornment of the body is in our blood and even in the veins of our oh so distant "cousins".
Rubies and diamonds make up this 18k yellow gold ring dating to circa 1900. Three rubies comprise .17 carats of a weight and two old single cut make up .04 carats of weight with a color of H-I and a clarity of SI1-2.
Birmingham, England was the city that gave rise to this lovely ring by a maker with the initials T&H, although research so far has not uncovered the firm's name.
Low profile, this ring or band can be worn stacked, as a wedding ring, or donned by itself for a striking look.
