Our marquis shaped 18K ring, carved in the shape of the pointed oval and emblematic of the gothic arch, has twelve old-cut rubies and a central cabochon opal accented with rose diamonds. The ring is a "marquis within a marquis" in the way the rubies form the outside border of another border of gold trim, which forms a marquis shape that encloses the cabochon opal and accent diamonds. The pointed oval suggests that this ring was styled in the manner of the gothic revival. The gold band is unusual in and of itself, with both sides carved to appear to look like leaves grasping the marquis head of the ring. The beautiful gems, interesting marquis shape, and artful carving of the gold band make this a wonderful ring all around. The ring is a US size 7.
