A stunning antique Arts & Crafts silver carnelian ring dating to around 1910.
Crafted in sterling silver the flowing openwork basket setting presents typical Arts and Crafts design with scrolling tendrils and four-petal flowers, all inspired by nature. The ring boasts a very high domed profile providing impressive finger coverage and it showcases the most mouthwatering juicy orange Scottish carnelian in a wonderfully plump egg shape. This Scottish gemstone is radiant and perfect, please excuse the tiny loose thread on the stone that shows up in the video!
Despite its statuesque size the ring is finely hand-wrought and feminine, a welcome change from Arts and Crafts rings that can tend towards the bulky and masculine. The perfect piece for lovers of the Arts & Crafts era, this ring encompasses the movement's love of the natural world and it's a bold statement in Edwardian emancipation, a must have for your antique jewellery collection!
