Unheated rubies are set in a pretty crossover pattern of diamonds in this 18-carat gold ring hallmarked for 1901, the last year of Victoria’s reign.

The outer rubies have a tapered setting that blends beautifully with the narrowing band.

A crescent of space on both sides of the central cluster introduces lightness, showing a move towards the more open and delicate Edwardian jewels, a look that remained in vogue until the outbreak of war in 1914.
