Antique George V 9ct Gold Mourning Ring With Garnet Cabochon & Diamond WW1 UK Size P1/2 (Code A982)
A rare antique mourning ring dating to the George V period with a Birmingham hallmark for 1915, so possibly a consequence of WW1. The ring has quite a broad band tapering up to the shoulders which is set with a high domed cabochon. In normal light the cabochon looks black partly due to the design having a closed back but when caught in the right light you get a flash of blood red as the stone is actually a garnet. Mounted through the garnet is a gold flower form set with an old rose cut diamond which is unusual in being a trillion shape. Below the cabochon and around the setting is a rope twist feature.
A lovely looking ring with good age and a strong aesthetic.
