Antique Australian 18ct Gold Diamond ‘Gypsy’ Ring by Larard Bros circa 1900

Very rarely do early Australian rings of this quality and by this maker arrive in our hands!|

Crafted in bright and buttery 18ct yellow gold by infamous firm Larard and Sons, circa 1900.

Modelled in traditional and classic ‘Gypsy’ style with three old European cut diamonds, bead set with star grooved pattern surrounding each.
Measuring a lovely wide 7.5mm in width giving a lovely finger spread, and tapering to 4mm at the verso.

Hallmarked with Larards hallmark of a ‘five pointed star with a bar’, 18 and the ‘sailing ship’ M.J.A guarantee mark for purity.

Curved and buttery this ring feels wonderful on the finger, one that veritably melts onto the skin and feels decadent and lush.

A wonderful piece of early Australian history, this ring is a true collectors item but infinitely wearable today as it was 120 years ago.

3 @ approx 2.5mm each or 0.06cts each
7.5mm tapering to 4mm at rear of shank
5.66 Grams

Very good to excellent antique condition.  No chips lovely bright white diamonds.  Diamonds are very secure and well set.  Very minor superficial marks to gold but this is insignificant and could be easily polished back to new… we prefer not to do this to antique rings.
