A Gold And Ruby Ring

A hollow but substantial ring probably with core material of tapering circular cross section shank and with an ovoid-shaped bezel containing three cabochon rubies. The shank is edged with three strands of twisted–wire filigree, the central strand meeting on the shoulder a cruciform decoration formed of applied indented oval elements. The gems set within a border of twisted–wire filigree. There are four floral motifs formed of triple discs. It has been suggested that the three stones represent the Hindu Trinity.
