Arts & Crafts Sterling Silver & Amber Floral Motif Ring
A wonderful amber ring from the Arts & Crafts era (ca1910)! This lovely, decorative ring is made of sterling silver and features an oval-shaped amber cabochon at its center. The amber is bezel set and exhibits a beautiful rich, golden hue. Surrounding the amber is a flowing design comprised of flowers at each shoulder and vine-like accents that hug the outside of the bezel. The design is exemplary of the Arts & Crafts era jewelry style, and has aesthetic influences that suggest Scandinavian origin, though no maker's mark is present. Stamped inside the shank is "925." A simply stunning ring, it looks quite striking when worn and would make a special addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 5.5 but could be easily resized. The large amber cabochon and sterling silver frame measures approximately 7/8" tall and 3/4" wide.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling setting or to the amber cabochon, which is secure and intact. There is a natural patina on the surface of the silver, which is normal and adds depth to the design.
