Besides this ring being created, what happened in England during 1898?
Marconi tested a radiotelegraph transmitted in Northern Ireland to Rathin Island. The same year, 3 noble gasses, krypton, xenon, and neon, were discovered by William Ramsay and Morris Travers. It was the birth year of C.S. Lewis and Gertrude Lawrence.
It seems so long ago and yet this ring appears nearly as it did then. Four diagonally set natural diamonds are gypsy set (below the surface) of this lyrical 18k gold ring.
White and bright, their total weight is .22 carats with deeply carved curvaceous gold work on each side.
