Like a fine sculpture, this French Egyptian Revival ring is beautiful from every angle.. The discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922 inspired many jewelers to revive the designs and artistry of Egypt.
The design of swirling lotus leaves is a popular image used in Egyptian art. The lotus is symbolic of Upper Egypt and represents "the sun of creation and rebirth." As the lotus flower emerges perfectly clean , it offers hope and strength, symbolically to those having difficulty in their daily lives.
The ring is centered with a white, Old European Cut diamond that is I/2 carat, F-G VSI. It is a size 7 1/2 US. The ring has the substantial weight of 6.6 dwt.
The patina is original and very beautiful. Originally designed as a man's ring, it is now unisex. There is evidence of former sizing and it can be resized.
It has a French guarantee stamp for 18 karat gold , an eagle, on the shank.
The condition is excellent/ superb. The design is timeless.
