This elegant three stone ring comes from the collection of Bentley & Skinner, the London jewellers by appointment to both Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. It features a central pigeon’s blood red cabochon cut ruby flanked by two dazzling diamonds that complement the central stone wonderfully. The cabochon cut is one of the oldest stone cutting techniques, and cabochon cuts were popular in jewellery of the ancient world and the medieval and Tudor eras. This ring would make a wonderful engagement ring for a discerning bride.
