Description

This is a stylish and most wearable silver ring made in the early part of the 20th century - the ring has been made in the Arts & Crafts manner and has a stylised leaf and flower head design around the central stone - the central stone is a claw set oval carnelian cabochon which has a lovely translucent amber colour - as can be seen in the pictures the ring is opened back. The shoulders of the ring also have a stylised cast decoration to both sides.

As can be seen in the pictures there are no marks whatsoever to the piece which would detail a maker or metal used, however it is guaranteed to be silver and of the period stated - I've seen a lot of jewellery from this period and with rings especially it's not unusual at all to find pieces unmarked with even some of the fine quality makers not marking all their pieces.

The naturalistic motifs and use of silver and semi precious stones is typical of jewellery from the Arts & Crafts movement - there is a touch of a Bernard Instone look about the piece but this is only speculation on my part, it's difficult to say with any certainty who made the item but that said it's a very nice looking ring.


Measurements

The ring is currently sized at a U.K. size 0 which translates as a U.S. size 7 - 1/4 - it has an internal diameter of 17.5mm - the gemstone is oval in form and measures 15mm x 12mm and has depth of approximately 7mm - this means the stone is approximately 9 carats - the total unpacked weight is 5.1g.

Condition

The condition of the ring all round is excellent - the stone is securely set in place and all 8 prongs are present - the stone is damage free and has a good colour in the light - the shank is all in good order and show no damage or other issues.
