Victorian Turquoise & Seed Pearl Sway Ring in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A Victorian-era right hand ring, made in 14k rosy yellow gold, whose face is a fluid arrangment of fine blue turquoise and natural seed pearls. This ring's three, oval, turquoise cabochons lay on a graceful diagonal, between arching, ribbon-like elements that are set with tiny seed pearls. This unusual composition gives the impression of swaying movement, or of festooning curtains, or of waves. The trio of brilliant turquoise stones is broken up by two diamond shaped stations, a design feature we find especially winning. This ring looks really beautiful in wear and lays straight and balanced on the hand. The turquoise is natural and completely untreated.
c. 1890 - 1900
