Here is a one-of-a-kind trinket box in silver gilt and studded with genuine gemstones. It was made in England and is hallmarked for Birmingham, 1925. The box is solid sterling silver with gold gilding throughout (probably 9 carat gold). The center has a cabochon garnet; surrounded by a ring of alternating round, faceted rubies and sapphires; and finally interspersed by oval chrysoprace apple green cabochon stones. Box dimensions: 2.3 inches long and 1.75 inches wide. Total weight: 76.9 grams
Measurements: Oval Garnet (17 carats)
82 Rubies (3 carats)
57 Sapphires (2 1/2 carats)
10 Chrysoprase (4 carats)
There are some inclusions in the garnet which also has a surface crease and some loss of gold gilding on the rim of the box at the opening. All in all in excellent condition. A rare find!
