A stunning lady-like antique British garnet ring. Believe it or not - it will celebrate its 200th anniversary next year!
The ring is made of solid 9ct yellow gold and is hallmarked accordingly. This beauty is very old and dates back to the early Victorian era (year 1821) - a lovely collectors item!
The shank of the ring has a lovely floral engraving which is typical for Georgian and Victorian rings and goes all the way to the reverse side.
The central stones are three bright oval garnets measuring circa 6x3 mm each. The centerpiece is accented with 8 beige and gray seed pearls which are preserved in a good state according to their age.
Will make a relevant and most importantly wearable gift for yourself or someone you love.
