    You can imagine my surprise when I saw this ring on ebay, I knew straight away who the maker was. I had to watched it for nine days, with in trepidation. The final few seconds I was shaking, I did pay more than I wanted to do, but eh, he's one of of my favourite makers.
    As you can see it is a massive ring. The band and the shank is made of 9ct Gold as is the outer edge on which the silver design leaves and Amethyst are Set. I think it would probably have been made around the 1930s.
    The Amethyst is oval and measures 13mm by 11 mm. The silver leaves are wonderful, I've looked through a lots of Bernards rings but not seen one like this.
    When I first saw the ring and looked at the hallmarks 9ct & Silver, then to see the maker Mark B.I, I couldn't believe it, it can be very frustrating when you have jewellery that isn't marked.
    Many thanks for looking

      Hi Alan, I remember when I lived in Mexico my friend and I used to go and play Bingo (sad lol) we used to share the winning whoever won. I have the same feeling when I'm waiting for the end of a auction, as I did when I or my friend needed the last number, that Adrenaline rush, and yes the thumping of the heart. Thanks for passing by.
