Victorian Silver St. George and the Dragon Ring

Renaissance Revival jewelry was en vogue during the 1800's 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 St. George ring is no exception as it was made around 1890, depicting a traditional Renaissance scene of St. George slaying the dragon.

This silver ring was handcrafted in Austria-Hungary. It features a pierced motif not only on the ring face, but also on the shoulders where a scrolling floral design can be found. The ring face measures 21.3 mm north to south and 21 mm across, it sits 3.3 mm off the finger and narrows to 2.5 mm at the back of the band. There are no marks and it has been acid tested. This piece weighs 8.3 grams and is a size 7.

Shiny silver wrapped around the finger with artwork inspired from a thousand years ago? That’s what I call a masterpiece.
