While walking around Newark Fair I saw a Bernard Instone brooch which of course I went over to have a look, I was very tempted to buy but I have the same brooch in my collection so I decided not to. At the side of the brooch there was this ring, I thought the Citrine stone had such a wonderful deep orange colour and the facets are lovely. It as a lovely art and craft look I thought the ring was a beauty. Unfortunately if you look at the photo's there is damage to one of the prongs which as been broken off if you look at the other 3 every quarter they are folded outwards. The lady who was selling this ring said it could be Bernard Instone, I personally don't think it is, of course there are no markings but it tests for silver.
If anybody has an idea of who the maker could be that would be great.
Many thanks for looking.
