At approaching 200 years old, this stunning quality genuine Georgian ring bears some of the finest engraved decoration around, each section carefully done by a master artisan and is exemplary of its era. Its simple design contrasts with the minute detail found all the way round - and just gets better the longer you look. It's made of solid 18 carat gold and bears one of the finest, clearest and most perfectly struck hallmarks around, for London 1833, with the unusual maker's mark ET RK. It has a central locket compartment glazed with its original rounded, beveled glass and accessible by a jeweller or handy person.

This has an engraved gold bezel, itself surrounded by a black enamel band, with another gold bezel in turn. But my favourite aspect of this piece is the shoulders - quickly tapering split bands join at a foliate terminal, engraved as though they're sprouting from a flower. The foundation beneath these is a wonderful wide band, with four handsome hand carved ribs. Normally this type of ring is dedicated to the band and/or the back of the head - it's refreshing to see one without a personal engraving. Overall a fabulous quality, genuine Georgian ring in amazing original condition, and with some wonderful features that set it apart from the rest!

It's a size 10.5 not resizeable, measures 12 mm across the head and weighs in at 4.1 grams.
