Ring with an enameled, oval bezel. The deep blue enamel surface covers an engraved metal base. There is painted gold enamel on the surface with raised areas of opaque and red enamel applied to appear as gemstones. In the center is a faceted crystal with a beaded silver surround that functions as a bezel. A twisted wire surrounds the bottom of the bezel. The shoulders are double wires that converge into a double-wire shank.


Indistinct mark on the shank
