Hand painted miniature portraits were the predecessors of photographs. When there was no other way to record a likeness of someone, the miniatures were treasured and passed down in families. Some portrait miniatures were painted of a specific person, and others were of classic style beauties rather than a particular real person. Often, these pieces were made into jewelry and worn as decoration, such as our ring.
Converted from an earring, this little Victorian beauty is just brimming with vitality and charm! Set in 14 karat yellow gold, framed in blue enamel, punctuated with natural seed pearls, and paired with an antique replica shank, the hand painted porcelain scene is absolutely charming! A golden-haired child is holding a lavish array of bright, beautiful fruit. With a garland of flowers in her hair, and a yellow bird alit upon her shoulder, she is a colorful treasure sure to become a favorite in your collection!
