Description


This impressive pietra dura antique dress ring has been crafted in 18 ct yellow gold with a 9 ct rose gold shank.


The oval ring features a fine pietra dura* plaque depicting leaf and bud designs and stylised blue and white flowering stems.


The substantial 18 ct yellow gold border is embellished with applied bead decoration, scalloped designs and an applied delicate rope twist design to the outer edge.


The tapering ring shoulders blend seamlessly with the plain 9 ct rose gold shank.


This Victorian ring has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 18 ct gold with a 9 ct gold shank.


Note* The term pietra dura signifies the requisite hardness and durability of the materials used in mosaic work, officially describing those stones that fall between the 6th and 10th degrees of the Mohs Scale of hardness—that is, between feldspar and diamond.

The most commonly used of these hard stones were quartz, chalcedonies, agates, jaspers, granites and porphyries.)

The antique dress ring is fine quality, set with an impressive pietra dura panel.

The ring is a very good gauge of gold and is in excellent, original condition.
