Antique 18ct Yellow Gold Pearl Half-Hoop Ring Circa 1900

Ever popular pearl half-hoop ring set with five graduated well matched  pearls ranging in size from approximately 4.5mm to 3mm.
Pearls are white in colour with a slight silvery hue and still have a nice lustre.
Each pearl is individually basket and claw set to solid flat shoulders with simple ball and grooved detailing.

Modelled from 18ct yellow gold this classic and elegant beauty pairs beautifully with an assortment of your favourite stacking bands or perhaps an antique diamond half-hoop, or two!

Presumed Cultured but probably a mix on Natural and Cultured
1.8cm East to West
5m wide
Rise from finger 5mm
3.37 Grams
‘E.B’ Believed to be makers mark for Edmund Bennett- registered Feb 1899
Acid tested to 18ct
R 1/2 or 19.0mm diameter or US 9
Sizeable with care
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.
