This superb antique ring was crafted in 1912 and assayed in Chester and is hallmarked crisply as such.
Modelled in 9ct rose gold and styled as a beautifully low rise circular ‘bombe’ ring studded with vibrant natural Persian Turquoise cabochons of various sizes and hues, and to the centre is a high faceted antique cut bright stone which is more than likely paste/glass, typical of the era.
Full enclosed at the verso and with curved bifurcated shoulders flow organically to a solid half round shank.
Becoming so very hard to find rings in the ‘bombe’ style let alone a lower rise one such as this example, this fully hallmarked beauty is going to be a treasured family heirloom we are sure!
