A striking 15ct gold ruby and diamond three stone Art Deco ring. The diamond is half a carat and has a good rectangular cut deep red ruby on either side of it. The stones are set in “millegrain” settings. From the French word “mille” for a thousand, and from “grain” as 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.The effect is much nicer than to have claw set the stones in this case.
