victorian black enamel and pearl 18k gold ring


The Story

From the Victorian era, circa 1880s-1900, this antique band is a chic find.  Made from 18 karat yellow gold, an open, woven design filled with black enamel.  The black enamel set against the warm gold makes it pop!

Three small pearls, each approximately 1.75 mm, sit at center within the black enamel work.  The design goes half way down the band and tapers down to a solid gold back. 

We love the style of this ring. While antique, it feels chic and modern. The slight dome shape of the ring makes it comfortable and easy to wear both alone on your finger or stacked up along with your other favorites.
