Edwardian Lab-Grown Ruby & Diamond Cluster Ring

$1,950.00


Description

DATE: Edwardian, c.1910

Simply stunning Edwardian cluster ring set with a dazzling lab-grown ruby surrounded by an icy white diamond and platinum halo. This ring was made in the early 20th Century, at a time when lab grown gemstones were at the cutting edge of modern technology, and could command prices exceeding the natural stones on account of their large size, vivid colour, and flawless clarity. This gem ticks all three boxes. Lab grown rubies possess the same chemical, physical, and optical characteristics as the naturally occurring rubies - they're the same mineral, corundum - and were usually grown from a natural "seed" ruby. It's a great size, and modelled in platinum throughout.
