18th Century Ruby Halo Portrait Ring
DATE: Georgian, c.1790
This stunning antique ring features a halo of rubies, around a finely painted miniature portrait of a lady (wearing a rivière necklace, no less!). Modelled in 15k gold, the shoulders feature further ruby accents and the band has had sizing beads added - easily removed by our jeweller.
Head: 20.2 x 17.0mm - Width of band: 1.2mm
No marks present, tests as 15k gold
Very good, the head and band are likely a later (Victorian) marriage
