1873 Victorian 15K 15Ct 14k Rose Gold English Bloodstone Ring Birmingham Etched
1873 Victorian 15K 15Ct 14k Rose Gold English Bloodstone Ring Birmingham Etched. Offered today is a true Victorian bloodstone ring–this dates to Birmingham 1873 and it has an amazing, hand-etched solid 15k rose gold mounting (slightly higher karat gold fineness than 14k we are used to here in the States). This was possibly crafted as a signet ring, but was never monogrammed. The bloodstone is a deep green with a few spots of red. Checking it on an angle (difficult to see in the photos) there are a couple of teeny tiny flea bites and a very very thin hairline crack or possibly a scratch, but it is really in very intact condition. I mention this only for honesty and accuracy, and these small imperfections do not affect wear. Only visible under 10x loupe and very intact in setting. The mounting is beautifully hand-engraved, as was the case with so many antique rings (they just don’t make rings like this any more) and the setting is in great condition, especially for its age! This ring is hallmarked “15” “625” with anchor and the 1873 date stamp. It has been verified as 1873 by our experienced gemologist jeweler. The stamps are crisp and clear, and the ring has very little wear. It measures 1/2 top to bottom and weighs 2.7 grams. It is a size 6 and can be sized by any competent jeweler. Considering this ring is almost 150 years old, it’s in EXCEPTIONAL antique condition! PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE ITEMS I SELL ARE “VINTAGE” OR ESTATE ITEMS, AND THEREFORE ARE NOT NEW–SO PLEASE EXPECT NORMAL WEAR. I WILL DO MY BEST TO DESCRIBE ANY DEFECTS/FLAWS IN THE ITEM. PLEASE VIEW THE PHOTOS CAREFULLY AS THE SUPERSIZED PHOTOS ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE LISTING. I CANNOT END AUCTIONS EARLY, AND PLEASE DO NOT MAKE AN OFFER. I sell on consignment for jewelers who set the prices on my items. My pricing is UP FRONT–(not inflated just so I can lower)–and I price as low as possible, with no “wiggle room”–in order to meet my consignor’s net price. THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
