J.E. Caldwell Leopard Ring
With a nod of the head to jewelers Boucheron and Cartier for their forthright animal figural jewelry during the 1920s, this 18k yellow gold ring by Caldwell & Co. can carry its own with finely wrought artistic craftsmanship evident throughout the piece. The ring is designed in the form of a leopard with red ruby eyes staring intently at the .12 carat brilliant cut diamond quarry held in its paw. Its textured body with its gold “spots” wraps around the finger with a wide band. August in weight and substantial in feel, this is one way to wear leopard throughout the four seasons of the year.
Date: Circa 1965.
Measurements: 5/8 of an inch (1.7 cm) in length north to south on the hand and rises 3/8 of an inch (0.8 cm) in height off the finger. Weight of 13.5 grams (8.7 dwt).
Ring Size: US 5-1/4 (UK K; Euro or Int. Circum. 49.9 mm; Int. Dia. 15.9 mm; Japan over 9) and may fit more snug due to width.

Historical Notes: In 1839 J.E. Caldwell & Co. of Philadelphia began as a small watchmaker’s shop. It soon grew to be a premier jeweler and incorporated fine jewelry, silver, china and crystal into its offerings. Although mostly a retailer, the company was renowned for its own line of marvelous collectible Art Nouveau and Art Deco jewelry. The firm continued to produce fine jewelry until its 2003 closing of the flagship Philadelphia store.
