Antique / vintage ring. 18k yellow gold, natural no-heat ruby and 2 yellow diamonds. Made by Marcus & Co, New York, USA circa 1900-30's - possibly older (see below). Comes with two certificates - one from the GIA and one from an independent appraiser.

Measurements: Weight is 5.5 grams. US size 6.5. Diamonds 1.08ct; Ruby 1.83ct.

Description : 2 oval old European cut yellow diamonds flank a deep red, oval ruby. They are mounted in yellow gold, the shank and shoulders deeply moulded with scrollwork and foliage. Stunning quality of gems.
This ring will make a perfect engagement ring, but is also suitable to wear with any outfit and for any occasion. Highly versatile and beautifully made. Marcus and Co were famous for the fabulous quality of their workmanship and gems, which is why they are so highly sought after today. Putting this ring on your finger feels like slipping on a piece of sheer luxury. 

Marcus & Co. was founded in 1892. They produced magnificent jewelry for companies like Tiffany & Co. This ring is a little difficult to date: looking at the shank, it could be from the Victorian era. It was sold to me as 1920's, but I doubt whether the previous owner was very knowledgeable on the subject. For me, the style of the shank, with the moulded scrolls and foliage is closer to 1900. Any input will be welcome.

Gia certifies the ring as a natural, untreated ruby.

Marks and Metal: Marcus & Co inside shank. Above and to the right of the maker's name is a very tiny, all-but-illegible number - hand engraved inside the shank. It could be the inventory number of the previous owner or something from the manufacturer.

Condition: Good with negligible wear commensurate with age. A miniscule line at the bottom of the shank hints that it was once resized. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer.
