This lovely Antique Silver Marcasite and Amethyst Ring dates to the late Edwardian, pre WW1 era c1912.
With a fine silver (marked 925) band and an unreadable Hallmark, the unusual rectangular setting shows off the beautiful pastel cabochon set multi faceted Amethyst at it's heart.
Spanning the 2 artistic eras..with echoes of Art Nouveau, it also is an early herald of the coming Art Deco period..with the slightly abstract design of the silver marcasite surround.
Sizing is UK O and US 7.2 and the setting measures 5/8" x 3/4". The stone measures 5/8" x 3/8"
With a beautiful aged patina there is one small fault..the fine band has detached from the rectangular setting on one side. See picture #1 (right side). Any jeweller could fix this easily. Otherwise the Antique condition is very good.
This pretty ring will come to you in a Chinese silk ring box.
