A beautiful emerald and pearl cruciform ring from the Victorian era. The head of the ring appears to be older than the sympathetically added shank, possibly starting life as a stick pin, however it has been converted decades ago to make it a more wearable piece.
The centre is a glowing green emerald that is the ideal bottle green colour with light that appears to come from within and illuminate the stone, free from significant inclusions or surface wear, common with these sought-after gems, the stone is a truly beautiful to behold.
Whilst there is no doubt that the emerald is the star of the show, it is perfectly complimented by a cruciform of pearls surrounding it, sandwiched by tiny balls of gold. Overall, the pearls are in good condition with a bright grey toned lustre to their nacre. There is some evidence of old glue work to the collets of the pearls which is common to see in antique pearl piece and doesn’t affect the durability of the ring overall.
The ring has a simple, but complimentary, split shank that curves around the head of the ring with two bands of gold that meet and form a two banded shank. Simple, but perfect in design.

PLEASE ADD RING SIZING AS A PRODUCT TO YOUR CART
We offer a ring re-sizing service by our antique specialist for a small fee, starting at £40.
Most of our rings can be resized, but if they can’t we will stipulate this in the description.
As a rule we will only alter a ring by three UK sizes. If you would like to size a ring more than three UK sizes (either up or down) please contact us on a case by case basis and we will try and accommodate you as best as possible.
If you have any product altered or resized it can still be returned, however you will then be refunded the cost of the ring, minus alteration & postage costs.
Sizing takes approximately 1-2 weeks.
