A romantic Victorian betrothal ring in the Gothic Revival style popular during that era, this beautiful piece is fit for a medieval princess.
Yellow gold with six 'gypsy set' seed pearls, the ring is timelessly lovely and very elegant on the hand.
+ All the details
The ring is artisan made from polished 15 carat gold with a set of hallmarks inside for the assay office of Birmingham, England and .625 for 15 carat gold. Hallmarks are very clear in image #2. Note that 15ct gold was rarely used after 1932.
The ring features six seed pearls in graduating size and varying shades of creamy greys.
Ring Size: US 6.5 | UK Size N
The central pair of pearls each measure approximately 2.5mm diameter
The inside diameter of the ring is 16.92mm
Focal width North/South is 6mm
The narrowest part of the band at the back measures 2mm wide
The top of the focal sits 1.5mm above the hand.
Weight: 1.9 gms. The ring is light as per the style of the era but strong.
Age: c.1890 (I have sold a similar ring with a date letter for 1897)
Condition: Very, very good. The ring band is thin at the back as these rings were originally designed to be, very comfortable to wear - all hallmarks are crisp inside. The pearls have all their nacre, not showing wear and are firmly set. Please note: darker or orange tinted patches in the images are reflections in the highly polished gold.
I can never resist this romantic style of ring, timelessly lovely; truly for the hand of a princess.
