Had to show this beautiful ruby ring given to me by my mother 2 years ago for my birthday.
I'ts been passed down from my great grandmother to her daughter and from grandma to my mother, then to me. We haven't taken it in to be appraised or 'looked at' for fear of 'accidently losing or misplacing' our ring. It's a size 7. Worn very little by all of us. The ruby is beautiful, set high on ? I am no gemologist or 'learned' in the jewel business. The setting is delicately detailed, silver? It doesn't tarnish. My mother took it in to be cleaned in her presence long ago. The eldest of daughters has had possession of the ruby ring for many years. My daughter will be next in line to be heir to the ruby ring. ;-) There is a story behind it. I have to do more research and will fill you in a little later. If anyone has any knowledge of this type of ring and maybe its value, drop me a line.
