A beautiful and classic Edwardian carved 9ct gold boat ring bearing historical hallmarks for Chester 1911. The assay office closed its doors in 1962 so Chester hallmarks are particularly sought after and desirable today.
This elegant beauty covers the whole front of the finger with 3 deep red juicy garnets and 2 small bright white diamonds. The ring sits nice and high from the finger with carved gold scroll work to the top and bottom and fanned motifs at the shoulders.
A gold fully enclosed under gallery protects the stones and gives the ring plenty of substance. Gorgeous ring from an era of bygone elegance, it looks lovely from every angle and will invite plenty of compliments. The garnet is the birthstone for January and is considered a great gift to symbolize friendship and trust.
