Edwardian Diamond and Synthetic Ruby Navette Ring
ABOUT THIS RING
As sleek and slender as navette-shaped rings come, this Edwardian-era delight (dating back to the first decade of the twentieth century) sparkles up and down with small bright-white single cut and tiny rose cut diamonds trisected by diagonal ribbons of vibrant red synthetic* rubies. This striking wisp of contrasting colors is supported by split 'leaf' shoulders that twinkle with rose cut diamonds. Hand-fabricated platinum over 18K yellow gold, currently ring size 6 3/4. *Back in the day, due to their uniformity of color and flawless clarity, synthetic rubies and sapphires were considered a modern improvement over their natural counterparts, their virtually undetectable differences discernible only through a high-power microscope.
