This rare antique French pearl cross rosary ring is really quite a magnificent piece.

It is crafted from 18ct yellow gold with a straight band in an almost eternity style with seed pearls adorning the band almost all the way round.

The front of the band has an applied gold cross adorned with pearls sat at a skewed angle.

A very unique and unusual design, what makes this ring all the more special is it's origins, hailing from France in the mid / late 19th century, a country where the relationship between the people, power and Christian religion was strained at the best of times, this makes it also very much a statement for the era, a statement of ones beliefs and truths, one not afraid to show it.

Stamped with the eagles head mark for 18ct gold on the outer band, 19th century, c1870s.
