My Latest Obsession: Navette Rings

I saw the ring above on pinterest about 5 months ago and immediately fell in love with it. The ring is vintage and is called “Prairie” and costs over two thousand dollars from Trumpet & Horn:

This ring is definitely my dream ring! One day…

Prairie is a lovely antique Victorian era engagement ring made from 18kt yellow gold from the 1880’s. This unique and inexpensive engagement ring centers an Oval Cut natural ruby gauged at 5.05 mm x 3.41 x 1.76 mm weighing exactly 0.76ct. The navette shape setting is studded with sixteen Rose Cut diamonds throughout and finished with a simple 18k yellow gold shank. This ruby engagement ring is truly a one of a kind piece. This ring can be sized to fit.

I am absolutely in love with this style. Navette, sometimes referred to as ‘marquise,’ is French for “little boat”, because it resembles the hull of a sailboat.
