Antique Unheated Burma Ruby and OEC Ring my final decision

This ring is my final decision from the Miami Beach Antique and Jewelry Show! It came home with me today. It was the first thing I tried on when I got to the show on Thursday and after 4 days of walking the floors I decided that it was the one for me. The dealer said it is from either the very late 1800s or no later than 1910. Definitely not from the 20s. The stones are set in platinum and backed in yellow gold. The two rubies are set in yellow gold bezels.
I kept coming back to this beauty! Thanks for looking! I am thrilled to be her new owner. I wonder who else has enjoyed her company over the last 100 and more years. :wavey: :wavey: She came with the lovely antique ring box too.

That's fantastic! Let me know when you get tired of it.......I love the use of the gold for the ruby bezels.

Spectacular jewel!

Phenomenal pick, it is perfect on your finger. Gah- I love the emerald ring you chose the other year, too. You can really pick 'em!

Thank you for sharing all the goodies on the other thread, as well, I really enjoyed that!

Wear this lovely in the best of health! Cheers!

Re: Antique Unheated Burma Ruby and OEC Ring my final decisi

Again thanks for your wonderful feed back!!

JoCoJenn-- Thanks!

Tarrotka-- Thanks you!

Springerspaniel-- Thanks so much!

Mayk--Thank you! Did you find anything to take home? So sad that the show will be moving for the next 2 years out to the Tamiami Fairgrounds while they do construction on the Miami Beach Convention Center. The dealers are not happy about that at all and some said they may not come back next year. Hope it will still be fun next year!

Azstonie--Thanks You silly girl!! Maybe I'll see you and Callie there next year :)

apacherose--Thank you and thanks for remembering my crazy emerald ring choice from 2 years ago! Glad you liked the other thread. I had so much fun taking the pictures of dreamy jewels. :love:

Missy-- Awww thanks again! Glad you enjoyed the new glamor shots. :)
