Description

Antique William IV/ early Victorian 18ct gold garnet & diamond ring, c1835. 5 Oval cut claw set garnets & 8 old cut bezel set diamonds set across the gallery, set in 18ct gold. The central garnet being 0.60ct approximately. The garnets are almost black in colour where they are so early in date, & it is not until the light catches them that you see a beautiful velvety red coming through them. There is what I would gather a makers mark to the inside of the shank, but it is extremely rubbed. An absolutely stunning piece. With gift box.
