14kt Gold Ruby Ring, Oval 1.25ctw, Early 1900's, sz. 3. 2.00 grams, signed
Vintage Jewelry: Vintage 14kt gold oval 1.25 ctw ruby ring, size 3. It is signed A with a star. This was sold as a ruby but also tested as ruby with refractive index, etc. The stone is in very good condition - not worn or chipped and is a nice deep red. Under magnification the stone does seem to have the lines you see in created ruby which is created with all the same properties as a ruby but it is created. It is not imitation but synthetic. It is bezel set and across the finger and raised up. It has an orate design at the base of the ring with little cut outs before the side of the band begins. The band is 2.5mm. The stone itself is appx. 8mm by 5.5mm. This came from a PA estate of a woman who had a wide collection of pieces from the 1800's into the mid 1900's. This appears to be early 1900's. Weight is 2.00 grams. Very good condition. See photos but they don't touch how good this looks, nor the great quality.

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
