Gold and Ruby Ring, Faulted.
Dainty and very pretty 9ct gold vintage ring, cross-over design, probably dating from 1930s plus. The central oval stone appears to be a ruby. It gives a very enthusiastic 5 bar response on a gem tester - which rubies do. It is flanked by a clear baguette stone on each side. There should be four of these, but only two are remaining. At a glance, you don’t notice the missing stones (one on each side), as the gold mount looks like an open-work design. These stones are either white sapphires, zircons, or similar semi-precious stones. As I see it, you can do one of three things: Get new stones fitted to replace the absent ones, or get the mounts of the missing stones filled in with gold, or wear it as it is. I usually don't put faulted items up, but recently we've been having a clear-out of items which have been languishing for years in the "gunna-do" box. I obviously am not good at actually getting round to "doing" these items, so here's this one is. It's such a lovely little ring, that it deserves to find a new home.
The band is hallmarked 9K - likely to be of European make. The band or shank of the ring is 1.5 mm wide. The face of the ring is 10 mm wide by 7 mm high.
Ring fitting is NZ/UK size O+ (USA size 7.1/4) with an internal diameter of approx. 17.55 mm. Apart from the faults noted, this ring is in very good condition. TW: 1.9g.
