Antique 15k Large Garnet Sealed Locket Ring
Unique is an understatement. This ring is large and partially covers the two adjacent fingers. The ring looks like a large brooch or pendant locket that was converted into a ring and sealed. There is something rattling around inside (could be a piece of gold that dis-attached or something that was placed inside as a memento); I do not want to open and take the chance of damaging the ring. Three garnet cluster flowers adorn the top a very intricate face. The craftsmanship is excellent, you cannot tell that it was not originally a ring. There is even a comfort groove at the base. Inscribed inside band are the initials "RRS". The lady I acquired this lovely piece from lives here in San Antonio, it was part of her mother-in-laws collection who was a fashion editor in Chicago back in the 1940's.
