Antique Edwardian four-band ring in 14K gold with cultured and glass pearls. Such an unusual find! This striking ring features a large, 6mm center cultured pearl set in a rectangular gold frame, wrapped with an applied, beaded, Indian boteh/paisley shape. This is trimmed on the sides with leafy, textured elements. Four bands of glass pearls form the body of the ring. The bands are flexible and movable and conform to the finger.
It will fit a size 6 or 6-1/2, and it's comfortable on the finger despite the thickness of the pearls. The height of the ring is 1/2", so it has a lot of presence.
The ring is unmarked but has been tested. It weighs 6.7g.
The condition is very good in the front. The big pearl and gold portion are in very fine shape with no defects. The bands of glass pearls are in good condition; many have lost their "nacre" and whiteness but they also rotate on the wires so you can bring the best sides forwards.
