Ring with a circular bezel set with 19 small, faceted pastes. The pastes are clear, round, and set around a center paste. The pastes are set into cut-outs on the surface of the closed, silver bezel. They are probably glued in and several are beginning to yellow. The tripartite shoulders have engraved, horizontal lines and the shank has engraved borders.
