Ring with a rectangular bezel featuring a cornacopia with stylized blossoms. The design is painted in relief on a white, possibly ivory base. The image is under glass. An elaborate design surrounds the bezel, composed of applied, stylized flowers made of curled wires and balls. Each shoulder has an applied, repoussé leaf, and the concave shank has diagonal striations. The ring is an assemblage of sheet metal parts soldered together and mechanically fixed. The applied leaves are pink gold.
There is a scratch mark of "24" on the underside of the bezel.
