The elevated flared ring shoulders integrate into the setting and are ornamented with a very subtle groove. The shoulders blend seamlessly into the plain 18k yellow gold fully hallmarked ring shank. The hallmarks to the interior of the shank includes the 18k fineness hallmark 750, the Chester Assay Office mark (three sheaves), the date letter for 1895 (M), and the maker's mark 'BH Joseph & Co' (BHJ & Co.).
