    It's not very often you come across a Bernard Instone ring like this. I was very lucky indeed to buy this stunning ring. As you can see it is a knuckle duster of a ring, I shall let the photos do the talking. There is one problem with the ring, one of the pearls as been damaged, now my problem is do I replace the pearl or do I leave it has it is. There are no markings which is usual for Art and Craft jewellery makers of that time, which is a pain, but there is no denying this is a piece by Bernard Instone.
    Many thanks for looking.

      If it were mine, I would replace it. The damage draws the eye away from the rest of the ring.

      I wonder if Kyratango knows of a way to recover damaged pearls? It's a lovely ring, Peasejean. :)

      For what it's worth, I'm with Bonnie,..... if it's affordable. Lovely ring. [;>)

      I think it's worth the fix too Jean.
      It is wonderful. I don't recall seeing Instone works with gold as well - did he use it often?

      A beauty!!!!
      For the pearl, if you plan to replace it, you can try to peel the damaged surface with a sharp flat knife...

      Thanks Efesgirl, katherinescollections, NevadaBlades, Karen and TassieDevil for your lovely comments and opinions. :-)

      Hi kyra, are you saying to repair is to peel, or replace with a new pearl, sorry I'm getting a bit confused.
    10. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      I meant that you have nothing to loose by trying first to peel it, if you plan to change the pearl.
      If peeling works, you won't have to change it; if the damage is worse after the try, the replacement will have to be done :-)

      Thanks kyra, I get you now. :-)
