Cluster ring with clear glass “gems”. The “gems” are all the same size and are arranged in a central rosette of seven “gems” surrounded by row of twelve “gems”. The glass is cut in imitation of rose-cut diamonds. All “gems” are set in silver and are close together, similar to a modern pavé-set. The closed underside of the bezel is gilt metal, convex, and plain. The gilt-metal shoulders are forked with applied silver decoration and the shank is ribbed.
