Classic Designer Signed Dropsy Ring ~ This lovely French antique is an outstanding piece and extremely rare find. The classic Emile Dropsy cameo has a perfect profile and a string of natural diamonds around her neck. The 3 diamonds are very good quality, eye clean and sparkle brightly.
Both of her hands are gently holding big iris flowers which extend to the edge of the ring and wrap around to the back side. The flowers wrapping around the edge is a trademark Dropsy design, except this precious piece is crafted in solid gold and not Fix or gold plated.
The ring is 14k yellow gold, it is tested and stamped 14k on the back with the signature of E. Dropsy on the left side edge of the face. The ring is a size 7 1/2 and it weighs 6.85g. The face of the cameo measures 7/8" high x 7/8" wide, it's an exact circle, with a radius curve that fits your finger perfectly. It's a gorgeous ring, very comfortable and amazing design work.
The ring is in superb original antique condition. The gold has been cleaned and slightly polished for shine. There is very minimal wear commensurate with age, all the details are strong and visible on the front and back and the signature shows on the side of the shield. You will adore how this wonderful cameo looks and feels!
