What a find this one was, and what a bargain. There are not many Tudor Era jewels around that I can find or afford, even in London, so I was thrilled to find this circa 1550 ring, as was the dealer who sold it to me. It is a cabochon garnet ring, 18 K (or better, but my tester doesn't go any higher), with quite a few traces of the black enameling still surviving. It all appears to be original, and in excellent condition, which is amazing. Notice the lovely basket back. This ring is a size 6 and 3/4 to 7, and I could go on and on about it's rarity, but I won't, as the ring speaks for itself. Do forgive the tree branches in the photo; there is no discoloration to the garnet, but it does act like a mirror. The garnet measures 3/8 of an inch East to West, and about 1/4 and 1/2 inches (if there is such a thing) North to South. The ring weighs 3.52 grams.
