Beauties abound in a forest of green shades set in a beautiful hand crafted Cannetille style mount. This antique lovely was fully hallmarked for 15ct gold in Birmingham in 1876, at the time when the city was a busy hub for Jewellers and craftspeople involved in the trade. Nicely decorative from all views with charming hand engraved detail to the band too, the gems are hand-cut Green Pastes. From the mix of colours, it is evident that some of the paste gems have been replaced, in our opinion this just adds to it's quirkiness and the 'story' of her life over the past 142 years.
The size is an 'N' and sizing is tricky as the engraving continues all around the band.
