Antique Edwardian Belle-Époque Burma Ruby and Diamond Toi et Moi Ring 18K Gold
An absolutely marvellous and delicate antique Edwardian era Belle-Époque ring paved with diamonds and calibre set ruby decorations. The extremely finely crafted turn of the century navette shaped ring depicts a stylised crossover Toi et Moi design with a ruby motif swirling across both ends in a snake like fashion. The intricate design shows an S-shaped line of calibrated Burma rubies channel set into yellow gold, while the remaining top of the ring set throughout with round old European cut diamonds, all to a platinum over yellow gold D-section shank with diamond-set shoulders, circa 1910. The head of the ring measuring 27mm (1.1") long and 8mm (0.32") wide (without diamond shoulders). The boards below the head of the ring are richly hand engraved with foliate decorations and ornaments.

There is a total of 30 round old European cut diamonds with average sparkling H white color and VS2 clarity with combined estimated diamond weight of approximately 1.40 carats. All 17 calibrated rubies were thoroughly inspected and found to be natural, or Burmese origin and with no indications of heating.

Their color is a fine ruby red also known in the trade as pigeon blood red. Combined weight of all rubies was estimated to be in the 0.55 carats range. Ring size is 50 (US size 5 1/4 / UK size K), but can be resized.

Gross weight of the ring is 4.2 grams of 18K yellow gold and platinum. Absolutely scarce antique collector jewelry piece and one of the extremely intrinsic and rare Edwardian style rings and jewels. This gorgeous piece is a sublime example of Edwardian elegance. The rubies with their curving design amidst the paved glittering diamonds provide a true and wonderful contrast. The openwork shoulders of a foliate design complete this luxurious piece which would pair perfectly with a simple and chic cocktail dress.
