No matter what the era, every country that has produced jewelry does so with their own flair and distinctive touches.
A classic example of a type of mid-19th century English ring is this one created with chrysoberyls and red-colored paste stones.
Note the formation of an east west cluster of three main graduated gemstones with smaller ones between (usually two) and one at each end. Look closely at the profile picture and you will see ribbons or figure eights of gold beneath the gemstones.
Another trademark is the method the stones are held in place. Each has a bezel (wall) with sawtooth pointed claws or prongs and tiny gold beads.
Lastly the shank or band possesses a distinctive engraved pattern that is often very similar from ring to ring. In 15k yellow gold, the chrysoberyls are vivid spring green, clear and bright. Small fuchsia pastes (glass) stones are set between.
