A different take on a ring, this synthetic ruby and diamond, yellow gold and silver set dress ring is a Victorian antique. 

The synthetic ruby is set in the centre of the design, which is encircled by ten collet-set Old European-cut diamonds. The flared paired-leaf design ring shoulders are each ornamented with an 18 ct yellow gold collet-set round-cut synthetic ruby, and embellished with 11 pavé-set Dutch-cut diamonds. The paired leaf design is integrated with the main setting and joins with the plain ring shank at a subtle chevron design.
