People always ask me where I buy my jewelry. Well, in truth there’s not only one place. Sometimes I visit small markets held in little galleries, sometimes I find myself in giant, sprawling antiques markets filled with tiny stalls, each with it’s own flavor, reflecting the personal tastes of it’s owner. Sometimes I shop in barns, in English fields on chilly mornings when the frost hasn’t yet been melted off the grass. On these days I buy hot coffee more for it’s hand warming effect than for it’s caffeine. I don’t care one bit if my toes are a little bit cold because when I find rings like this one, I instantly warm them with the little jig I dance!
This ring struck me as Georgian with it’s richly colored, smoothly polished Jasper gem and it’s deeply carved frame and shoulders. I was surprised, then, to find it dated ‘1913’, I strongly suspect it was made around 1830-40 and dated at a later time. It’s a gorgeous ring and the wonderful variegated stone measures 13 x 10.5 x 5 mm, the overall ring is 17.6 mm north to south and 14.4 mm across the face, it sits 6.3 mm off the finger. This unusual beauty is a size 7.5 and weighs in at 4.9 grams. It is marked with ‘9c’ for 9 karat gold and was surely made in England.
This is the kind of ring that I find myself personally drawn to, it feels amazing on and garners many a complimentary reaction!
