£1,875.00 GBP

A very stylish Art Deco ruby and diamond ring in a diamond-shaped design. The top is platinum and the shank is 18ct gold. The rubies are tear drop shapes with rose diamonds in between. The centre diamond is a transitional cut stone. The stones are set in “millegrain” settings. From the French word “mille” for a thousand, and from “grain” has the same meaning in English, it refers to what appears to be thousands of tiny beads upon a metal precipice or edge. Gem set rings often employ this device. It is defined as a technique where a knurling or a millegrain tool is impressed into a metal edge leaving furrows and also beads or tiny ridges of metal.
