18 carat yellow gold antique pearl ring made in 1909
Hand made in 18 carat yellow gold during the Edwardian era, this antique ring is set with five pearls in a gypsy setting. The gypsy setting is a term given when there is a star pattern surrounding the stones in the ring which was created by the jeweller pushing into the gold resulting in not only a star pattern but also a bead to add to the security of the stone. Used for centuries in jewellery, it is a very clever way to add an extra element to a piece of jewellery all this while making sure that the gemstone is safely secured.
