Antique French Pearl & Diamond Ring
While no hallmark remains, this ring of 18k yellow gold is typical of French design and craftsmanship. Similar in configuration to a bypass finger ring, each end of the twisted design shank extends around the finger and terminates with a flowerhead and leaf motif. Set between the two flowers are two creamy white natural pearls (untested but assumed natural due to age and examination) bifurcated by a delightful old mine cut diamond of an estimated .03 carats. All in textured 18k yellow gold, this period finger ring is exquisite.
Date: Circa 1890.
Measurements: 1/2 of an inch (1.2 cm) in length north to south on the hand and rises 1/8 of an inch (0.3 cm) in height off the finger. Weight of 3.8 grams (2.4 dwt).
Ring Size: US 6-1/2 (UK M-1/2; Euro or Int. Circum. 53.1 mm; Japan 13; 16.9) and easily can be sized to fit most. Ring sizing information.
Condition: Excellent; evidence of previous resizing only visible upon very close inspection or with magnification.
Origin: Possibly French in origin.
Note: Diamond has not been removed from mount to preserve the integrity of the setting. Diamond weight has been approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weight.
