Eight individually claw / prong set round cut green paste stones embellish the bead decorated frame to complete the design. The flared ring shoulders are accented with an engraved decoration which continues around the outer surface of the shank. The ring is hallmarked to the interior of the shank with the 15k gold fineness mark (15.625), the Birmingham Assay Office hallmark (anchor) and the date letter for 1873 (Y). This Victorian dress ring is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card. NOTE*: During the Victorian Era, non-precious pastes were a part of evening jewellery sets. They were also used in pieces intended to convey coded messages of romance, based on the colours of the pastes. Such crystals, which were made of high-lead-content glass and had a permanent foil backing, gave the illusion of almost any gemstone, including diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and amethysts. Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.
