A lovely medium dark  coloured oval ruby of mixed cut forms the centrepiece to this classic and elegant cluster style engagement ring.  The design looks most feminine on the hand and with the cluster set raised slightly it can sit neatly next to most wedding rings.  The ruby measures 7.1mm x 5.2mm x 2.81mm deep and is held in white claws to a halo of 10 brilliant cut diamonds, each approx. 2.8mm diameter, also in white claws.  The 10 diamonds have a combined carat weight of approx. 0.80ct and have colour and clarity assessed as F/G and VS-SI1 respectively.  The ring has tapering yellow shoulders with chenier inserted supports to a "D" shaped cross section band.  Hallmarked 18ct gold at the London Assay Office in 2009.
Finger size 5 7/8ths (centre) (US/Canada); L1/2 (centre) (UK/Australia) with resizing available courtesy of Nicholsons Jewellers.
