A special antique navette ring in richly patinaed gold. The head of the ring is set with a juicy cabochon garnet in a stunning marquise shape, the closed back gold setting whining through the gemstone to give the look of a foiled sweet wrapper as it is turned in the light. The garnet is then set to the centre with a chunky old mined cut diamond of approximately 0.08ct; its high crown sparkling delectably as it dances in the light, highlighted by the simple gold bezel that surrounds it.
The ring is finished with a delicate split shank, which unusually remains as two separate bands throughout, giving you this subtle design feature to the shank that we don’t usually see. Unfortunately the hallmarks that once were have worn away but we can happily date this ring to c.1850.

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.
We do not offer refunds on altered pieces, so please make sure you love your new piece before you purchase.
Sizing takes approximately 1-2 weeks.
