Victorian Era Locket Ring with Dendritic Agate in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A soulful, Victorian-era locket ring, made in 14k yellow gold, whose hinged face is set with a fine, buff-polished slab of dendritic agate. This bezel-set agate is slightly translucent, with earthy, fern-like, dendrite forms that float in its light field. The ring’s shoulders feature a deeply engraved diamond pattern; its weighty, half-round shank tapers from the shoulder toward the base. Rings from this era with locket faces are quite rare. This one is complete with its original glass and photo ring, and it has a substantial, comforting weight. Hinge functions admirably.
