15kt Gold Ring with Carved Coral Cameo c1900

  • Details

    This is a beautiful ring made of 15kt yellow gold set with an exquisitely sensitive carved coral cameo of a late Victorian lady with a Gibson hairstyle.  The carving is exemplary of the skill of Italian cameo artisans at the end of the 19th into the beginning of the 20th centuries.  The ring is marked 15ct, the gold having been done in the U.K., while the cameo was most certainly done in Italy.  15 karat gold was not used after 1933 or thereabouts.  The ring is from c1900.  However, a dedication was engraved within the band dated 1950.  This is a date that came later than the creation of the ring, and the ring was probably given as a gift that was antique, perhaps handed down within thesame  family.  US ring size 7; UK ring size O; Asian ring size 14.  USA shipping, handling and insurance ~ on us.

    Why we love this ring: the dedication within the ring.  The later date proves the fact that antique pieces were appreciated during every age. We cherish our memories and the things that bring them back to us in living color!
