Seeking knowledge: Antique Jewelry

Hello All Orchidians -

I’ve acquired a lovely piece anitque looking jewelry and I know very
little about it except that it appears to have old European cut
diamonds surrounding an oval Ruby. It has been re-shanked and the
karat mark is no longer visible. Can anyone out there in Orchidland
take a look at my pics and give me an idea of what this piece might be
worth intrinsically. I am not intending to sell it but if anyone
knows where it would find a happy home for a fair price I might
consider parting with it.
