Arts & Crafts Sterling Silver Mississippi River Pearl Ring
A wonderful natural pearl ring from the Arts & Crafts (ca1910s) era! Crafted in sterling silver, this beautiful piece features three natural Mississippi River pearls vertically resting in pinched bezel settings. Silver leaves extend from the band to surround the design, beautifully complementing the pearls' asymmetry. All three of the pearls have a lustrous surface and vary slightly in shape and size, a common characteristic of natural Mississippi River pearls. A simple band completes the design and "STERLING" is stamped on the underside of the ring's design. A wonderful example of the Arts & Crafts Era aesthetic, this artistic ring makes a beautiful statement piece!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 6.25, but could easily be resized up or down. The pearl centerpiece measures just under 1" tall, about 5/8" wide, and rests flat against the finger.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. All three natural pearls are intact and secure within their setting. There is a natural darkened patina within the grooves of the piece, which is normal and adds depth to the design. A small section of the sterling leaf design was recently restored, expertly returning the piece to its original, seamless design.
