Elegant platinum arms hold a raspberry red ruby like a glowing orb between them in this late Edwardian beauty! The ring's bypass-like design resembles a surreal, abstract eye with a bright ruby iris. A mix of 8 old European and rose-cut diamonds glitter above and below the .85 carat ruby. The ring is handmade in platinum. The naturalistic curved form speaks to the Art Nouveau style of the late 19th and very early 20th century, when it was made. The ruby, although of a very fine color quality, does have inclusions. One inclusion breaks the surface and appears as a scratch, though it is not readily noticeable to the naked eye. The ring is currently a size 5 3/4 and may be easily resized up or down upon request. It is just under half and inch at its widest point.
