1875 Ruby & Pearl Sunburst Ring
Cute antique round cluster ring dating from the mid Victorian period, 1875 to be precise. A hand inscription inside the band tells us it was gifted from FB to SHB on the 10th of August, 1875. A birthday gift, or wedding present perhaps? It's crafted in 18ct yellow gold with an array of vibrant rubies - pinkish-red hue - and diamonds arranged around a central, natural pearl.

We offer detailed and accurate condition reports on each listing. These pieces are antique, vintage, or pre-loved, often over 100 years old so they're going to have lived a life. A healthy patina and the odd scuff/scrape are quite normal... it's part of their charm! Everything we present has been checked over by our jeweller and should be good for wear for many years to come (unless otherwise stated) but please remember to treat them with appropriate care and consideration for their age.
