SOLD Victorian 18kt Gold Turquoise & Pearl Ring
A pretty, traditional ring from the early Victorian period made from 18kt gold. The ring has five beautiful alternating gemstones across the finger; the traditional combination of natural turquoise and pearls. The turquoise have a wonderful vibrant colour and are offset perfectly by the creamy grey lustre of the pearls. The stones have been set with the classic triangular claws so often seen on rings from this period. One of the pearls is slightly sunken in its setting, but is secure nonetheless. The setting has a pretty scroll design on either side and the shoulders of the shank have a lovely detail, finishing the ring perfectly.
