We absolutely adore this gorgeous and elegant ring. Six luminous pearls of a generous size are set in crimped demi-bezel settings of soft yellow gold, on a slim and smooth band. The finger coverage is just right, spanning the entire width right up until where your next finger can snuggle up closely and comfortably.

This ring has has some work done over the years, and while it doesn't affect the wearability or beauty of the piece, it does make it much more difficult to date it (and is always important to disclose)! The ring is made in the Georgian style, but I'm confident saying it's revival and not period. Some of the repairs over the ring's life time include reshanking the entire back of the band (the seams are visible inside the ring, but fairly unobtrusive from the outside), a resize down (with some slight pitting at the seam, in the centre back of the band), and several pearl replacements. The pearl replacements mean that there is some variance in the colour and tone of the pearls, and there is epoxy in most of the settings. These repairs could have been done at any time in the ring's life, but also mean that the ring bears no stamps that could be used as clues. It would be very generous to give the piece a broad potential period of construction from the late Victorian period (after 1870) to mid-twentieth century (likely before 1950).

With a closed back setting and the epoxy under the pearls, it will be key to this ring's ongoing happiness to avoid getting it wet!
