A stunning antique Victorian Austro Hungarian ring. Hallmarked with a dog head c.1867 and the letters GK. An amazing ring, like a spiralling catherine wheel firework. Formed as a raised dome, with spiralled tendrils of indidivually bezel set emerald paste stones and alternating strings of tiny lustrous seed pearls.
With a large bezel set pearl to the centre. A baroque and bohemian piece, with an embossed shank and a signature pierced and chased underside. Lovely vintage condition a few of the stones have moved slightly in their bezel mounts, but all are secure, a gorgeous ring with a real'old treasure' aesthetic. Approximate size UK Q 3/4, US 8 1/2. Top of the ring measures approximately 22mm diameter.
