Victorian Swiss Enamel Gold Ring Forget-me-not Flower

This lovely Victorian Swiss enamel ring was handcrafted around 1880. A forget-me-not flower motif of orange, blue and green can be spotted at the center, with a double black enamel border. The shoulders showcase a detailed scrolling design giving it even more elegance. The ring face measures 12.4 mm north to south, 9 mm across, and 2.4 mm off the finger. The band width narrows to 2.2 mm at the back.  This antique ring is a size 6.5 and weighs 1.9 grams. It bears no marks and has been acid tested at 14 karat gold.

Ancient Greek myth tells us that while the Creator was giving all flowers their color, he heard a soft whisper, “Forget me not!” Nearly all his colors had been used at this point and he was only able to gift this little flower a small amount of blue. The flower was very pleased and delighted to don such a light blue shade, and so he wore it with pride and happiness.
