French-Cut Ruby and Emerald Double Row Eternity Ring

A beautiful and unusual ruby and emerald double row eternity ring by Hancocks, the straight square edged band set to the front with two rows of alternating sections of three French-cut emeralds and three French-cut rubies, channel set three quarters of the way around the band, all in a handmade 18ct yellow gold mount with finely detailed millegrain edging and hand engraved decorative details to the outer edges as well as to the back of the band. The stones are all fine quality and intensely saturated so despite their diminutive size they still look vibrant and richly coloured.

Directors Notes

The origins of the French cut can be traced back to the 15th Century however it wasn’t until much later, during the 17th Century that it really became fashionable. Having found favour with European Royalty, the style became particularly popular in France and it is likely that this is where the name originated. As diamond cutting techniques progressed, stones with a greater number of facets had become increasingly sought after because they displayed more brilliance than earlier, simpler cuts. The design of the French cut had developed from the addition of extra facets to old table cut diamonds thereby altering them into much more lively stones. This style of cut has changed very little to this day and its evolution marks one of the earliest milestones in the development of the brilliant cut diamonds we know today.
