Victorian Turquoise & Pearl Pansy Locket Ring
DATE: Victorian, c.1870
This pretty antique ring is set with natural turquoise and pearls (and a tiny rose cut diamond in the centre), the head formed to look like a pansy flower. To the reverse is a glass-fronted locket compartment, that can be removed to store a photograph or other memento. The shoulders are adorned with lovely hand-chased detail. Modelled in 15k gold.
Natural Turquoise, Pearl and Diamond
Head: 8.3 x 7.6mm - Width of band: 1.8mm
No marks present, tests as 15k gold
Very good, evidence of an old resizing to the back of the band - of little consequence
