This is a classic Bernard Instone ring. It is marked silver no makers mark. Unfortunately it has a leave motif missing as you can see from one of the photos. I did ask the buying if there was any chance of a repair, in his words, he said that he had asked a restorer friend of his if it could be done, the restorer said it would be difficult , and was better off leaving it alone. I love this ring, you would have to look closely to see the damage. I also like the box it came in, I'm not sure if it is bakerlite, I would be interested to know, so I have put a separate photo up.
Many thanks for looking

    Beautiful color in the stone! I know nothing about Instone -- what are some of his characteristics in this ring.

    Hi Bluboi, I would say with this Particular Bernard Instone ring, the charactertistic is the handmade leaves which Bernard Instone was famous for. Thanks for your interest.

    Thank you racer, the Amethyst is striking it's a shame one of the leaves is missing but I can live with that.

    Hi Bluboi, this is some information on Bernard Instone.

    Thanks, Jean. Does anyone know what his later jewelry looked like (from the 1950s and beyond)?

    I have a silver gnome ring which was made in the 1960s on my posts. I think by the late 1950s he gave the running of his business to his sons. I also have a commission ring, a Black Opal, diamonds set in Platinum 18 ct gold ring, I'm not sure what time period it is from, some people think it was his early work and others say it was his later work, who knows. But they are both in my post. Thank you for taking a interest, Mr Instone was certainly a very interest individual.
