A late Victorian masterpiece, this crossover ring weaves a tale of eternal romance, its central ruby and surrounding diamonds a testament to love's enduring splendour. Forged around 1900 in the heart of Belgium, the piece captivates with its intricate meld of 18K yellow gold and platinum. Each stone is a silent witness to the intimacy of whispers, the intensity of stares, and the unseen moments it has adorned. Wearing it is an invitation to muse over the myriad of untold stories and cherished encounters it has witnessed through its century-spanning existence.
