CONDITION: Very Good
This beautiful antique Victorian Emerald ring is in very good condition for its age, and is ready to be worn and enjoyed straight away. The colour of the Emeralds is superb, and they are particularly clear, (which is rare of Emeralds in general as they're naturally heavily included). The Emeralds are well matched and secure in their settings, and the ring is of solid construction. There are clear hallmarks for 15ct Gold and Birmingham but the date letter has been obscured by a previous re-sizing. Luckily enough we can date the ring confidently as circa 1850-1860 from the style and the way in which it was made.
As with the majority of antiques this lovely Emerald ring does show some signs of its rich past. There is a little wear (but not much!) to the back of the band, and the re-sizing we mentioned earlier is visible from the outside. The two outer Emeralds have a little nibble to the edge but they are not deep and have not affected the longevity of the stones. Each Emerald is free from any cracks or hairline fractures, so treated with respect the can continue to be enjoyed for many years to come. A great addition to any Emerald-lovers collection and a real heirloom of the future.
