A most unusual and stylish ring suitable for a man or woman and dating to the mid Victorian Era, circa 1870. A large seep red natural garnet is bezel set in silver into a 9ct yellow gold wide stirrup ring. The shoulders are engraved and at the top and bottom of the stone is a series of golden scallops.
The natural garnet measures approximately 8.5mm x 7mm. It has been recently re-cut and has no chips or scratches.
The face of the ring measures 10.8mm north-south and 7.5mm east-west. The ring sits 4.2mm high on the finger.
The band is 7.8mm wide at the shoulders, tapering to 3mm wide at the back. It has been well worn and is 0.2mm thick at the thinnest point. This makes it exceptionally comfortable to wear.
Weighs 2.6 grams
Size J or a snug 5 and fits true to size because of the tapered band.
