This beautiful antique ring made from genuine Baltic butterscotch amber hails from the Edwardian era, a true period piece and a lovely example of Art Nouveau design. The opaque gemstone is natural and as smooth as silk, it is cut and polished in a lovely cushion shape with an elegant gently pillowed profile.
Dainty silver shell motifs frame the closed-back amber cabochon which is a rich egg yolk yellow and free of any matrix. The ring shoulders are decorated in slender reeded columns. This delicate ring is stamped inside with '830' and 'CW' makers mark and she remains in very good condition with light surface wear commensurate with age and the amber secure in the setting.
An utterly charming antique Baltic amber ring and a statement in refined Edwardian grace and femininity.
