This is a 14K gold genuine ruby spray ring, size 5, in florentined leafy pattern that was my first jewelry purchase with my babysitting money in the late 1950s. Everyone had birthstone rings then, and this is not a child's ring, but it is not to my taste today. It was not worn a lot, but t is a ruby missing from the grouping on the left side to w the rubies in a spray pattern, come down to a point (4th picture, starting at the first one and reading as if pictures are a book - gold circular area on right in the stones area, is w the stone should be). T should be 10 rubies; t are 9. All the rubies are very typical ruby deep pink in color, the same size, prong set, and I can see w the prong is bent (not broken off) in the spot w the stone was lost. The ring is not small, measuring 3/4" side to side and 7/8" up and down. The stones are set high up on the top above the florentined leaves. The gold leaves are double layered from underneath with space between them in spots - they are not flat, so t is a significant amount of gold in the ring, making it look more substantial and slightly convex. It can be worn with the rubies pointing up or down. The ring is in very good condition otherwise, and if you care to replace the stone (probably $35-50 .. we have NYC prices ..), it would be a great ring for someone who likes the style and rubies in an "old stock" ring, thus the low price.
