An Edwardian ruby and diamond ring, circa 1910. The ring belonged to the novelist, poet and gardener, Vita Sackville-West, who is best remembered for her unorthodox marriage to the writer and diplomat Sir Harold Nicolson, her affair with Virginia Woolf during the 1920s and for creating some of the most admired and influential English gardens of the 20th century. What a beautiful way to set marquise stones.
