Magnificent Citrine Dinner Ring
During the course of the history of jewelry converting a piece of jewelry from one type to another was a frequent occurrence. It was routine to change out gemstones as well as entirely transform the jewel. Here we have a modern interpretation of the practice in the guise of a ring which was formerly a brooch.
The top cluster is circa 1880 and features a very large oval faceted citrine (18 mm by 25 mm) of an estimated 24 carats. The golden gem is a tiger lily citrine with bright orange highlights and is complemented by its 14k yellow gold bezel setting with scalloped edge and framed with a triple corded gold rope border. The outer surround is configured with a gold cannula or tube wound with double lengths of twisted gold wire. The tiered top has been fashioned with a modern under gallery and shank of 14k yellow gold with side details similar to that of a classic antique column of a scroll design.
Date: Top cluster is circa 1880; under gallery and shank are modern.
