Antique Edwardian / Belle Epoque platinum, 18carat gold, diamond and emerald ring. Made circa 1900 - 1905.
Size 5.25 (US). Weighs a little over 4 grams.
Exquisite design of tiny granulation and openwork, all set with old minecut diamonds and centered with an emerald, with lovely brilliance. The stones are set in 18k gold and the rest of the ring is platinum. The bezel is rounded so that it folds beautifully around the finger, leading to very finely engraved shoulders that resemble the outspread wings of a butterfly.
Typical of Edwardian and Belle Epoque jewellery, the workmanship and design of this ring is very fine and delicate.
The inside of the shank is hallmarked 18K PLAT.
Condition: neither the naked eye, nor even regular magnification show any faults, but the vastly enlarged 'photos show a tiny restoration (see 'photos). Otherwise, good condition.
Independent appraisal available to new owner upon request.
