ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

From St. Petersburg, Russia - circa 1910, by the renowned Russian master jeweler--among other things--to the Czars (as well as other nobility and carriage trade) comes this uncharacteristically simple, though characteristically gemmy, ruby and diamond double band ring. A gently graduated row of gorgeous, crystalline red, old Burmese cushion-cut rubies (accompanied by a gemological report from Stone Group Laboratory stating: Natural, No Indications of Thermal Enhancement, Burma origin) share half the stage with a mirror-image row of sparkling near-colorless antique cushion-cut diamonds, all set in gleaming 14K yellow gold. Clearly hallmarked on base of shank. 1908-1927 Currently ring size 6 3/4.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
