A wonderful antique ring set with a large cabochon cut garnet or 'carbuncle' garnet as they were known.
The garnet is a rich glowing red, the photograph here not really doing justice to its depth of vibrant cherry colour. The setting is a 9 carat rose gold, a coronet or crown style with lacy claws making the perfect backdrop for the magnificent stone.
A vintage ring to be admired and looked at when on, even by its wearer!
This ring is late Victorian to Edwardian in age, circa 1890-1910, and most likely English in origin, although I get the feeling it has travelled!
Who knows what stories a ring like this could tell! Wear it and create a new story....
It comes with an independent valuation and we could size it to fit!
