An arresting statement ring – this piece is a thoughtful conversion from an enormous Etruscan Revival stick pin, dating to the Victorian Era, circa 1880. The pear shaped garnet cabochon is foil backed, giving the stone the ability to burst into super saturated, vivid colour in direct light.
The face of the original stick pin is hand made with a double rope border that frames the extra large natural garnet. The border and face of the ring XRF test as 17ct, with the domed back testing as 9ct gold.
The band has been handmade to compliment the original component, in sympathy with rings from the period. It is made in 9ct gold for strength and stability.
The pear shaped garnet measures 16.35mm x 11mm x 4mm.
The face of the ring measures 21mm x 15.82mm. Sits 8.14mm high on the finger.
