Yard Inc. diamond and ruby ring. Set centrally with one octagonal asscher cut diamond, F colour, VS2 clarity, with a weight of 1.87 carats in an open back claw setting, with a recessed vertical row of three tapered baguette cut natural unenhanced Burmese rubies in open back channel settings with an approximate total weight of 0.50 carats, further enhanced with six round old cut diamonds in open back grain settings with a weight of 0.30 carats. The total approximate diamond weight is 2.17 carats, to a asymmetrical geometric cluster ring featuring polished borders and intricately pierced backholing, the broad trumpeting shoulders tapering down to a solid squared shank. Tested platinum, signed 'YARD', American, circa 1935, accompanied by an HRD Antwerp report #10003061001.

Yard first introduced asymmetrical cocktail rings, also known as ‘sport’ rings, in the 1930’s. They became increasingly substantial pieces of jewellery in the following decade, often set with sizable centre stones. A similar ring, differing only in the shape of the central diamond, appears in 'Yard:The Life and Magnificent Jewelry of Raymond C. Yard', by Natasha Kuzmanovic, fig. 313.
