Condition: This is a conversion piece; the ring head flower was likely originally a brooch or stickpin, and was added to the shank at a later point in time. The gold is a high-quality 14k yellow, with a bright sunny luster, and sturdy craftsmanship, with clean, clear, symmetrical details, from the intaglio leaf texture to the openwork gallery just under the ring head. The shank is well-formed, with a circular shape without distortion, for a comfortable fit. There is some minor and typical age wear, common for older jewelry items, that do not detract from the quality of the piece: this includes some darkened patina wear, especially to the underside of the ring head, and some areas of solder work.
