Antique Rose Gold Agate Ring
Hand engraving is on the verge of being a lost art. However, in the 19th century most items were still ornamented in this manner. Tools with different shapes were used to remove metal from the surface to form intricate designs. This late 19th early 20th century 9k rose gold ring displays the art form on a shank of hollow construction inset with an intensely colored bloodstone. Although originally an accessory for a man, the beautifully decorated ring is more than suitable for a woman.
Measurements: 9/16 of an inch (1.4 cm) in length north to south on the hand by 7/16 of an inch (1 cm) in width for bloodstone. Weight of 3.3 grams (2.1 dwt).
Ring Size: US just under an 8 (UK P; Int. Dia. 18; Euro 57 mm; Japan 16). Ring sizing information.
Condition: Good; evidence of old resizing on interior of ring back; tiny indentation on back and one on inside top portion (see photographs) not visible when worn; a bit of softening to high points of floral engraving; one minute nick to an edge of bloodstone.
Date: Circa 1890 - 1900.
