Classic and unusual at the same time, this Edwardian three stone ring features three cat's eye chrysoberyl cabochons. These gems are what we call chatoyant stones - "chatoyant" is a bastardization of the French term "oeil de chat" aka eye of the cat - meaning that it has the optical effect of a streak within the stone that moves with the light. This effect is hard to capture with a camera but rest assured it does look a lot like a cat's eye when seen in person.
18k gold (tests), 3 cat's eye chrysoberyl cabochons
City hallmark has been obscured by a previous resizing so it dates to either London 1909 or Birmingham 1913
Very good - faint mark on the shank from a previous resizing
8.5, can be slightly resized; 9mm head, 3.1mm shank
1900 — 1910
