Antique Ruby & Diamond Target Ring

£1,445.00

An original early ruby and diamond target ring crafted in 18ct yellow gold with silver settings to the diamonds. Wonderful decorative split shoulders with a weighty band which all appears original (amazingly). The rubies are a mid colour pink exhibiting slight age in the form of worn facets upon inspection under magnification. Excellent contrast with the rubies being set in 18ct yellow gold whereas the diamonds are mounted in sterling silver. A true original early art deco ring.
