This stunning antique ring is in lovely vintage condition, however as can be seen in picture 4, one of the turquoise stones has been lost over the stretch of time.
The silver is slightly darkened due to age and can be easily cleaned but that would do away with all the beautiful work time has done :)
50mm diameter, somewhere between U.S. sizes 5 and 5 1/2, U.K size K

I have my own collection of these that I have accumulated over the years, all from the same place; a flea market on Lisbon.
Other than their evident beauty, what fascinates me about them is that each one is a love story, possibly of heartbreak since they have been disposed of.
I don't know if this tradition was more universal, but in Portugal these rings were gifts of woe, if a girl agreed to become a young man's girlfriend then she would wear a ring like this as a sign of commitment. A pre engagement ring if you like.
When I was a teenager this tradition still existed, although the rings had been reduced to very simple and thin bands very similar to the standard wedding ring, difference being they were worn on the right hand.
