Edwardian Garnet Belcher Ring
A striking Edwardian belcher ring set with a vibrant purplish red garnet. A belcher ring's claws are carved directly into the gold of the head, forming petal-like cut out sections around the stone - sometimes referred to as scalloped (like the edges of a scallop shell, I guess). This one's crafted in 9ct rose gold with Chester hallmarks from 1917, a good chunky size making it suitable for any hand size.

We offer detailed and accurate condition reports on each listing. These pieces are antique, vintage, or pre-loved, often over 100 years old so they're going to have lived a life. A healthy patina and the odd scuff/scrape are quite normal... it's part of their charm! Everything we present has been checked over by our jeweller and should be good for wear for many years to come (unless otherwise stated) but please remember to treat them with appropriate care and consideration for their age.
