Antique Edwardian 9ct Rose Gold Solitaire Paste Ring by Joseph Lawrence circa 1910

Such a special little ring, this Edwardian original by Joseph Lawrence dates to circa 1910.

Featuring a pristine solitaire ‘paste’ central stone which is in untouched flawless condition and eight claw set.  Paste’ stones are actually a form of glass and historically used to imitate diamonds.

Hand crafted from 9ct rose gold with simple upswept shoulders supporting the centre claw set stone, this little ring exudes elegance of a time gone by.  The paste stone measures approx 6mm which equates to the equivalent of a 0.86ct diamond !
Hallmarked crisply with the iconic hallmark of Joseph Lawrence to the inside of the shank.

Our instinct with this ring is that it has never been worn… not in its entire 110 years .. the condition is unworn, the paste stone is perfect with no rubs, band is also near perfection.  This wonderful and dainty little ring appears to have, for some reason, been stored ver careful away for safe keeping.
