Who likes mystery ?? We have an attractive one here for you !
The ring looks ancient, but it isn't ! It is also not a piece of ultra modern ......
It is made in 15 carat gold, not hallmarked but professionally tested, dating it to pre 1932. We purchased it in Europe as part of an interesting, good quality collection containing.....ancient jewellery. Unfortunately we can only continue guessing it's history and the most probable explanation is that the owner of the said collection had it made in the beginning of the 20th century to copy another, ancient ring or replace a lost one. It is reminiscent of common of 2nd to 4th ring and appears to have been cast.
The buttery yellow gold of this chunky and attractive Roman-like shape looks more like the rich yellow of a very high carat gold. The finish is uneven and has a lovely patina confirming that it is around 100 years old if not more. We are listing it as vintage as we are unable to pin point it's exact age.
It weighs a lovely 9.9 grams and is a US size S and UK size 9 1/2. The face of this unusual signet measures 9.3 by 7.2 mm and with shoulders it spreads 22.7 mm. It is lovely and flat against the hand , sitting 2.9 mm off the finger. The band tapers down at the back to 4.8 mm in the thinnest part.
We love....... this well made and unusual mystery ring for the blend of the ancient and modern. We like the ancient vibe and we love all things different, and it certainly is one of a kind......
