The sweetest little ring, crafted by renowned Canadian brand Birks (and in the national colours, to boot!). The ring features a cluster of stones in three diagonal lines, creating a subtle east-west navette shape on the finger. Three pinkish-red faceted stones are flanked by a line of pearls on either side. A plethora of dainty prongs hold the stone in place in a low-rise setting that is comfortable and attractive. The rich, juicy stones at the focal point of the ring are charming old cuts, with broad culets and small crowns - the centre stone appears to be a natural ruby, with a slightly more pinkish hue and loupe-visible inclusions, while the side stones have a more orangey-red tone and at the time of listing are not confirmed to be natural. In the early 20th century, when this ring was made, synthetic rubies were new to the market and considered cutting-edge technology, commonly used in fine jewelry. With this in mind, the ring has been priced as though the stones are all synthetic, just in case.

Good antique condition with reasonable wear to gold and stones. One side stone has a scratch across the table and down one side of the pavilion, and one "pearl" is an imitation stone. Some epoxy visible on and around pearls, minor evidence of past resizing.
