Renaissance Revival jewelry was en vogue during the 1800s all across Europe. Austria-Hungary established itself as a maker of quality jewelry during this time, as the pieces were not only detailed and beautiful on the front, but oftentimes equally detailed and ornate on the back. Workshops in Austria-Hungary crafted the majority of these Renaissance and Gothic Revival pieces between 1860 and 1910. Oftentimes, these pieces were made in silver and then gilded in gold. This antique turquoise ring is no exception as it was made around 1880 in Austria-Hungary, during the Victorian Era and is silver gilt.
The face of this lovely ring features an oval Renaissance Revival design with seven cabochon turquoise stones. The center turquoise is surely the star of this show as it is a beautiful robin’s egg blue color with a metallic matrix. Tiny silver gilt flowers and leaves can be found scattered gracefully around the face. It measures 14.4 x 9.0 mm. The six smaller turquoise are approximately 2.5 mm in diameter. The face is 27 x 22.1 x 9.5 mm off the finger with a bandwidth of 1.8 mm. This ring is a size 7.75 and weighs 7.0 grams. It has been acid tested.

A single turquoise stone sat in a golden setting on her finger as she grabbed the steering wheel. Her gypsy soul was impulsively venturing toward the sunset, until her tank of gas ran out. On and on she drove, drinking from an old water bottle and snacking on milk duds. She never turned back, always dreaming forward to the mystery of the future. She took few items with her on these road trips, but always that ring, and her sense of curiosity.
