A superb antique 19th century portrait miniature ring.

A tiny portrait, all hand enamelled in vibrant colours of a lady in full profile in a garden setting, the portrait has been enamelled on mother of pearl and this can be seen through the back of the ring.

It is large, pretty and vibrant, a definite statement piece.

The enamelled panel has been set with a surrounding halo of cut steel 'gems', cut steel was a popular alternative to diamonds at a time and the craftsmanship that went into creating these pieces was phenomenal.

The cut steel is fused to a brass frame mount which is then mounted on the large 9ct gold setting and band.

It is stamped to the band 9ct, and tests as 9ct.

A charming antique ring with stacks of character, it has a very grand yet romantic feel to it, blending the soft enamelled scene with the large size and rustic cut steel to perfection.

Late 19th century.

Fair used condition overall, some age commensurate surface wear and signs of use, some loss of enamel to the portrait picture, see photos.
