A rare and coveted find! This splendid Belle Epoque Pearl ring is one of the most unusual we've ever had the pleasure of looking after!
The Belle Epoque was a period in history that begun with the end of the Franco-Prussian War in 1870 and continued all the way to the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. It was a time of regional peace, increasing wealth and a flourishing Arts and crafts scene, and its name "Belle Epoque", or "Beautiful Era" captured the sheer race and optimism of the period.
The ring was crafted by hand during the early 20th Century, and is truly one of the most beautiful rings we've ever seen! Set on a crown-like setting of soft rosy Gold lay a bed of natural freshwater Pearls and glimmering rose cut Diamonds, with a tiny leaf or, perhaps a bow at its centre?...
The intricate way it's been put together is astounding and will keep you staring for hours!
