Victorian Turquoise, Pearl & Ruby Hands Ring

$2,200

Two hands embrace a cluster of turquoise, pearls, and a solo ruby. Hallmarks tell us the ring was made in Birmingham in 1866 in 12k, which we don't see much. This gold fineness standard was legislated into use in 1854, along with 15k and 9k, but it was abolished in 1932.
