Description
A beautiful & old 18ct gold ring in Biedermeier style; a period in European history where the middle classes became increasingly affluent, giving rise to the Arts. It is specifically 1815-1848. The design & construction of this ring is typical of the period – the use of scrolls & freshwater seed pearls means it is unmistakable. This ring also has a rare gemstone – a bright green demantoid garnet that gives off fire & just sparkles! It will be Russian & mined in the Urals. Demantoids were discovered in the Urals in the 1830s, so perfect for the age of the ring. This antique ring is plain backed & does not have hallmarks. It tests as 18ct+ gold. It appears that one of the scrolls on the front of the ring was once enamelled – there are traces of black & white remaining.
