Can you guess what is the most frequent question asked about our jewelry? It concerns its history. Who owned it, where it came from, what is known of its past.
In this case, it is a delight to reveal that this Edwardian ring was owned by Mary Elizabeth Benson who was born in 1876. It has been handed to us as temporary caretakers by her great grandson.
Created in 14k gold, it is set with a round faceted garnet of 2.03 carats. Radiant in a wine red hue, it smolders with fire. It is prong set and for its type, sits up just enough to allow for the depth of the gemstone without being too high a profile.
The interior is hand engraved, M.E. Benson, Feb. 6, 1900. It is anxiously awaiting its next incarnation with as loving a caregiver as its previous 120 years.
