An bright buttery antique 22ct gold King Edward VII half-sovereign coin is mounted in this fantastic vintage 1960's 9ct gold gents ring.
The British half-sovereign has the iconic St. George & the Dragon image on the front along with a 1909 date. The reverse has the bust of King Edward VII, Edward reigned from 1902 and died in 1910 so these coins were only minted for a relatively short period.
The 9ct gold ring mount is crafted in a fab mid century modern design with an open work under gallery that is cut out in marquise diamond shapes. A pie crust border frames the bright yellow high carat gold coin. The ring mount is hallmarked for London 1963, and it is also stamped for the maker Fred Manshaw, a manufacturing jeweller that was located in Hatton Garden, London.
This is a fairly large and substantial ring so it definitely makes a very cool retro statement!
