This is one of our favourite rings in the collection. It is mounted with a beautiful deep red coral bead cabachon. The chased design on the top is mirrored on both sides and is very bird-like. It possibly represents a crow with outstretched wings. Somebody loved this ring so much that they had it skillfully repaired with brass on the finger hoop. This old repair only adds to the overall beauty of this piece. Rings of this style were typically worn by both men and women.
