A charming 18ct gold Georgian ring set with two rubies and one old mine cut diamond. The shank is repoussé or repoussage which is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. This was common practice in the Georgian period and there are many examples of such workmanship. This ring is a little different because it has two good well matched rubies as well as a diamond. It was most likely given as a token of affection as the colour red was associated with passion and love.
