A fun and unusual mixed metals ring from the Edwardian (ca1910s) era! Crafted in 18kt yellow and white gold, the ring has a very unique and wonderful two-tone design. The piece features a yellow gold rectangular centerpiece which has the 3-dimensional look of an open book. Arched across the center of the "open book" is a horizontal white gold section accented by four sparkling diamonds, three old Rose Cut stones and one old Mine Cut, which was most likely a replaced stone. Completing the beautiful design is a white gold band, which tapers as it nears the back. The unique wirework design can be seen from the sides and the small eagle's head French hallmark is stamped on the back of the exterior of the band. When worn, this stylish ring makes a lovely statement piece, and would be at home in any antique collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 7, but could be resized. The "open book" centerpiece measures approximately 5/8" across, 3/8" tall and when worn, rests 1/4 atop the finger. The tapered gold band measures 2mm wide at the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the mixed gold setting and all four diamonds are intact. As previously noted, it appears that one of the diamonds was replaced at one point as it is a Mine Cut and not a Rose Cut, however, this is not noticeable when the ring is worn.
