A 18ct yellow gold ring of French manufacture designed as orbicular ridges of gold balls rising around the shank to meet a flat plaque set with 16 natural, unheated round-cut sapphires weighing approximately 2.30 carats in total.
This ring is a bold yet restrained piece in which the rounded form of the shank and the conjoined spheres of gold of which it is made echo the round cut sapphires , giving a pleasing sense of continuity throughout the whole.
The ring is stamped with the eagle’s head for French manufacture and 18ct gold, along with makers mark MW for Melik Watch et Cie, makers of watches and jewellery in Paris. Circa 1950.
The ring is currently a size 6.25 (US) (M – UK), but may be sized with care.
A French 18 carat gold ring in the architectural Retro style set with 18 square cut rubies totaling approximately 0.70 carats in a ‘bridge’ design. The curve of the bridge section is interrupted by arching gold forms which continue down to form the shank of the ring.
Made in 18ct gold with a rhodium plating, this ring is all curves. Set with brilliant cut diamonds spotted with cabochon sapphires around a larger central sapphire, the design is strongly reminiscent of Suzanne Belperron.
An early Retro platinum ring with a stylish bridge form to a curved architectural motif, pave-set with 10 single-cut diamonds with a total weight of approximately 0.30 carats. The platinum of the mount has a brushed patina, giving a subtle gleam to the metal rather than a polished sheen.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful necklace ShinyPrettyThings obtained for Ellie. She was so thrilled with it and I just know it will be precious to her always. The colour is so vivid and she was so thrilled to open it.
Over the past year or so ShinyPrettyThings has carefully assembled a beautiful collection of Jewellery pieces for me. Predominately rings and necklaces, each piece has been carefully chosen with my personal taste in mind. I like delicate details and period design, Georgian, early Victorian and a little Art Deco…this is just what ShinyPrettyThings has found for me. I love my new ruby and diamond pearl drop earrings that were so cleverly sourced to tie in with my other pieces. ShinyPrettyThings brings wonderful customer service and immense knowledge and attention to detail to each commission.
My new clocks arrived safely this am. They are absolutely beautiful!! Extremely well packed and in perfect condition. Could not be happier!
Thanks very much. Hope we can do business again.
