Ring with a circular bezel set with faceted crystals. The central clear and surrounding blue and clear imitation gems are bezel-set in a silver mount. The wide shoulders have raised enamel bosses with a floral design. Below the bosses on each side is a bezel-set, faceted green crystal. The rest of the shank is covered with cloisonné blue and yellow enamel. The blue is within circular cloisons, perhaps further imitating precious stones.
