CONDITION
Very good antique condition.  Two pearls are probably replacements, quality workmanship. No thinning to shank, nice thick and strong. Original gold hallmarks lost during previous re-sizing, makers marks remain.

***The three original pearls are thought to be natural rather than cultured.   Cultured pearls were introduced into the commercial market in the early 20th century and this ring would slightly predate this  but they have not been lab tested. The two presumed replacement pearl are probably cultured pearls.
