Antique French 14K + Gold Seed Pearl Turquoise Cluster Ring Victorian Size 5.75. With its lovely floral centerpiece and graceful design, this authentic vintage Victorian gold ring is so pretty! The flower looks like a fancy French pastry with slightly ruffled cups for the eight seed pearls in two sizes and a bezel-set turquoise on top. Feminine, delicate and refined, it has graduated or stepped vertical lines on the shoulders that set off the stones and lead to horizontal lines on the adjacent part of the band, adding contrast, texture and further accentuating the design. It is a size 5.75 and the face measures about 3/8" tall by about 3/8" wide.
It is about 3/16 deep, meaning it will rise that high off the finger. It weighs 1.6 grams. It is hallmarked in two places on the back of the shank, where it is hard to decipher (last photo).Long ago sizing made one of the hallmarks illegible but the ring was most likely made in France and imported into Austria. It acid tests as at least 14 karat gold (and is between 14 and 18 karat). There is a small area of discoloration on the inside and a little unevenness on the outside of the back of the shank from where it was once sized, as mentioned above. Also, there are small imperfections in the natural stones: some of the pearls have lost some of their nacre and one is flatter and more iridescent than the others. Apart from that, the ring is in Very Good vintage condition with just expected surface dirt and scratches. None of the small imperfections detracts from the ring's antique charm, beauty and interest. It faces up nicely and the ring is just beautiful! Comfortable and easy-to-wear to work or play, night or day, this ring will go with everything, from denim to dressy, making all your gestures more beautiful.
