    I have never seen a ring by Bernard Instone in this style, I think it is truly lovely. It is marked sterling but no makers mark. The leaves form the main shape in which are 2 pearls, the pearls are fixed on a wire which goes through them and makes them look like the stem of a berry. The leaves also extend to form the shank of the ring. The workmanship of the leaves and the structure of the back are all typical of Instones work. I believe the ring was make around the 1940s but not a hundred percent sure. I have done a Kyra and checked on the Pearls, in my opinion they are synthetic, but I could be wrong. Instone did use synthetic stones in his jewellery.
    The ring is 2 cm long and 1 cm wide excluding the shank.
    Many thanks for looking.

      Very pretty! Funny how you know who posted by the color of the nail polish!!! Lol!
    8. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 7 years ago
      Lol shareurpassion, I do change colour sometimes, but I do tend to go for the same colours without realising. I only have to go through my postings and your quite right about the nail varnish.
