Joe’s Special Box – Volume 68

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Joe’s Special Box is a virtual treasure trove of super sweet vintage jewels.  What was once a small square box has now become three overflowing bins…  one of which is nothing but rings.  Dainty Edwardian charmers, Art Deco gems and a few Victorian beauties like this one.  

Made in England in 1887, this 15 karat yellow gold enchantress is absolutely perfect.  Set in a diagonal swirl across the center are an alternating series of three natural pearls and a two bright red rubies.  Engraved scrolls fan out from the center section adding another layer of dimension.  A series of hallmarks are deeply etched into the inside shank of the piece, ensuring the karatage as well as the age of this 19th century prize.  The gold is silky smooth and glides over the knuckle to sit comfortably on any hand.  I love it on an index or middle finger.  The condition is mint – a pleasant surprise for a 132 year old ring.  Add it to your collection now for now for just $680.
