This is Rosamond, a real life antique ring from the late Georgian period, about 1805 to 1830. This is a heavy, ornate ring made of 14kt gold, with a detailed sterling setting holding one main, oval faceted, natural ruby, eight round smaller rubies and eight rose cut diamonds. I don't think that the rubies are treated in any way. There was no "white gold" or platinum at this time, so diamonds were customarily set in sterling to set off their whiteness. Diamonds and rubies from this period in history were just starting to come from India and were still not at all common, being reserved for the wealthy. At this time women would collect rings, each with a different color gemstone, to go with their gorgeously detailed gowns. Although the stones are very cool, very old cut and full of individual style, the truly impressive thing about this ring is the fantastic hand wrought metalwork surrounding and holding the gemstones, it is so detailed, so gorgeously done. Rosamond is just a stunning antique ring, a beautiful work of art, a real treasure for your collection!
I do offer ring sizing for a small additional fee, just convo me for details!

I ship within the US via First Class with insurance, unless otherwise noted in the listing or if you choose an upgraded shipping option. Shipping insurance covers the package until it reaches your mailbox. On orders over $750, a signature will be required. I generally ship as soon as I possibly can, often on the same day. If you are having a ring sized, this generally takes about a week.
For customers outside the US, PLEASE READ:
International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. WARNING: Items going to the European Union are subject to very high import taxes (VAT), please consider this before ordering. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond the original delivery estimates. It is against the law and I will not mark an item as a "gift" to avoid any fees.
If you are unhappy for any reason, please contact me within 14 days of receipt of your item and we will find a way to make you a happy customer! Buyer is responsible for return shipping costs, but the full price and original standard (not upgraded) shipping will be refunded to domestic buyers, international shipping is not refundable.

Your personal information will only be used to contact you about your order and to fulfill the order.
Most rings can be sized up or down 3 or so sizes, in some cases that is not so and I have added that information to the description. It takes my talented bench jeweler about a week to complete the work.
