Dates to the late Victorian era, circa 1899.

Crafted in solid 14K yellow gold. Hallmarked as such, as well as engraved in script. Try as I might, I am unable to completely make out the engraving. The first name appears to be 'Pearl' while the last name is a mystery. I can clearly read the date - 12'99. Likely a Christmas gift from many, many years ago.

Detailed shoulders lead up to an ornate and decorative buttercup mount that holds a 3.4 mm (0.15 carat) Old European cut diamond.

The front of the ring measures 0.25” (6 mm) from top to bottom, with a band that narrows down to 0.06” (1.6 mm) at the very back. The ring is currently a size 5.75, and weighs 1.9 grams.

Condition is very good, with no damages. The claws appear to have been re-tipped at some point in time, and it appears to have been sized during it's lifetime.
