This is an exquisite antique early Victorian 18K gold five stone ring! It features two old cushion-cut emerald, two chrysoberyl (it was first tested as white sapphire but further test indicates it is chrysoberyl as both gemstones have similar refractive index), and one pink sapphire (it is also called ruby as rubies and sapphires are simply varieties of corundum) at the center.

The stones are prong-set with open-back, sitting on a low-profile but extremely delicate and ornate high relief rococo style ring gallery. The flowing floral design extends to the shoulder of the ring. One of the benefits of this ring is that the gem setting is open backed. This means it can be worn without being concerned about getting it wet. This is a problem seen in many earlier rings where the gems are foiled/closed back settings. Also, the low profile mounting and smooth yet ornate shoulder design makes it very very comfortable to wear.
