My first post here in this thread. I saw this at auction and feel in love, listed as a 'Art Deco Diamond and Ruby Ring", and had to bring it home with me.

The ring is a little small, so I will have to get it sized. The stones are all secure in the setting, in good condition, but one of the rubies does have a little damage. The centre old european hexagonal cut diamond is estimated to by 75 pts, and a G-H color VS clarity.
The shank has wear to the base, and the millegrain on the platinum also has worn down in some areas.

On the inside of the ring, it appears to have Koch stamped, which I have taken a photo of. Excuse the quality of the photos they were taken using an iphone. Tried to get a close up, my skin looks awful close up.

What a fantastic ring! That center stone looks fascinating. If you ever decide to do close-ups, I'll be delighted!

P.S. - Have you tried the Olloclip? Awesome tool for close-up shots.

Ohh that is really lovely freddy :love: the scalloped outline softens the outline and the rubies are so bright! I imagine getting stones custom cut like that would be really pricey now.

I can see why you had to have it :sun: :bigsmile:

Re: Just had to have it.... Art Deco Ring more pics

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments.

I bought the ring at a jewellery auction I saw advertised. When I saw it in person it was LOVE, and although I paid more than what I originally wanted, I just couldnt walk away. Usually if I have been at auctions, I set my limit and that is that, but I have no regrets. Even the assistant I saw before the auction, said that the piece was well bought, and that I have done very well there.

I am posting a few more photos. One was taken when I was trying to take a photo through my camera with the ideal scope, not great but first time I have tried to see how I go. Now I just need to have the sizing adjusted, and see if I can find out anything at all about the mark KOCH in the band.

There were also a pair of antique diamond earrings which came home with me that came up for sale before the ring, which I will post about in another listing.
