The following is my Buyer Beware Commentary: There are so many new castings of these Edwardian – Art Deco era filigree rings, (1900-1930) the market has been flooded for several decades. If you want a vintage ring as opposed to a reproduction, there are a few things that can help indicate a newer ring. New rings have less "open work" in the pattern and have a far heavier look to the setting. The workmanship is not as graceful or fine. The edges of the open work are sharp. An old ring has been worn and loved. It has a softness to the feel of the setting. Another "hint" is if the dealer who owns the ring has hundreds of filigree rings, beware. These rings were reproduced in the 80s/90s by the millions. I so remember being offered trays of them. Some of these rings are really lovely and if you are not concerned about the age... go for what makes you happy!
