This dinner ring consisting of seven rubies and nine diamonds set in elaborately sculpted 18 carat gold was made in the 1950s for Lady Colin Campbell's mother, Gloria Smedmore Ziadie.
"I love this ring because it is so evocative of a time when ladies were ladylike and they abided by such rules as saving their elaborate jewels for galas, balls and grand receptions, wearing their more discreet pieces such as this diamond and ruby dinner ring to the theatre or dinner," Lady Colin Campbell says. "I frequently wear this ring out to dinner or the theatre, and never fail to be warmed by the knowledge that it is as stylish today as it was fifty years ago."
A ring of a similar design and execution with a similar number of stones of similar quality starts at £5,100.
