A thick heavy rolled gold antique gypsy ring mounted with a sparkling round paste (glass) diamond in a four point star setting
The ring is stamped inside with 3 separate punch marks '18' ,'BW' and '90'. We think BW is the makers mark and 1890 is the date or model number. The ring is a band style with a gently domed profile at the front graduating to a narrower band at the back.
Chunky and masculine in style with plenty of presence the ring shows its age, it has been loved and well worn, refer to photos. The rolled gold layer in still intact so cosmetically it looks good but there are a lot of surface scratches under magnification and small chips to the surface of the glass stone so we have priced it accordingly. All in all an impressive antique ring that deserves to be treasured again!
