Alling & Co Double Gryphon 14k Gold Peridot & Pearl Ring
* * SOLD * *
A charming antique ring featuring a detailed carving of a pair of gryphons. The beasts are carved in an art nouveau style, with fluid, serpentine lines . . . their mouths are open in a roaring gesture. These gryphons stand guard to either side of a princess cut peridot; natural seed pearls are fixed to gold wires, above and below the green gemstone. This is a wonderful, ornate miniature— a special amulet to symbolize fidelity, friendship or protection. Marked for 14k gold, and for the well-known jewelers Alling & Company.
