Antique Ruby & Clear Paste Stone Engagement Ring 10K Yellow Gold Petite Antique Ruby Wedding Ring Alternative Engagement Promise Ring Size 7
This sweet, petite antique engagement ring reminds me of a butterfly that would have fit right in with the Art Nouveau era! The center marquise shaped stone presumed to be a synthetic ruby without doing extensive testing measures approximately 5 x 3mm or 0.20 carats. On each side of the the center stone are two smaller accent red stones and four round cut glass stone or "paste" as it was called all approximately 0.02ct each. Paste was glass cut and polished to shimmer just like diamonds and was frequently used in high end jewelry to simulate precious gemstones and diamonds considered by some as the original "CZ!" The accent stones do shoe surface wear with "flea bite" chips on their table edges under loupe magnification which is considered normal wear for a ring of age. The setting measures approximately 7.5mm long by 15mm wide with a 2mm rise off the finger and the shoulder shank measures 3mm tapering to 2mm with room to size if needed. Truly a beautiful vintage ring that would make a stunning alternative engagement or promise ring, or a birthstone ring for the woman whose birthday is in July!
