Somewhat recessed below the level of the gold and rubies, is an outer border of small, rosecut diamonds, set in silver, as was the custom for setting diamonds in the 19th century. Each diamond is held within a tulip-like open pair of arms that form a gallery on the side of the bezel. They are planted on the bottom in a base of gold.The simple gold shank extends laterally from this gold mount. The openwork of the silver holding up the diamonds allows light to enter the ring from the sides, adding to the gleam of the rubies.
The entire bezel sits slightly above the level of the finger with the rubies at the highest level and the diamond forming the sides. Classic French workmanship of the highest order, this ring is definately a grade or two above the typical navette rings of the period and looks stunning on the finger. It is perfectly sized to suit wearing with any outfit - makes a subtle statement without being over the top and is also suitable for women of any age. Marks and Metal: French owl mark for 18k gold and swan mark for 800 silver are on the outside of the shank, which is typically, where the French hallmarked their jewelry.
