9ct 375 Yellow Gold Antique Victorian Minature Portrait Ring – size approx: S(UK) approx 9(US)
This charming Victorian bezel set minature Portrait ring features a finely painted pretty young girl holding a dove. The presence of the dove is particularly significant as it represents peace, purity and innocence. These types of pieces became popular during the Georgian times, well-heeled families commissioned designs of loved ones. Royalty and popular political figures also appeared in miniature portrait jewels. These types of pieces are now commonly worn as statement pieces and are now becoming increasingly more difficult to find and especially in fine condition.
Head Measures: approx 12mm width
Hallmarked: 9ct 375 (worn but just visible)

Lovely pre-owned condition – overall quite clean. Setting and panel all appear in good order, some wear and deterioration noted to portrait but all totally commensurate with age.
