Bought this really stunning ring last week for Buy it Now price of $75.00.
It has the plaque on the inside of the ring with WAGER in capitals.
It is a double shank silver ring, with a large stone that the seller said is a brilliant cut citrine.
There are 4 gum leaves, one top and bottom and one each side, as well as two rows of vine.
Naturally I am really excited to have a signed Rhoda Wager ring!!!
There is something curious about this ring though........stamped on the double shank is the sterling silver mark 925!!!!!!
I don't know what to make of that as I thought that neither Rhoda nor Dorothy stamped this on their work!!
I just can't understand why there would be the known WAGER plaque as well as the unknown 925 stamp.......
Perhaps Jewels1900 or KiwiPaul might have seen this before?? Or do I start to worry about it being a copy?? For the price I would not be too upset if it wasn't a genuine Wager piece, disappointed yes, but still a very lovely Arts and Crafts ring which I would wear!!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy seeing this ring, it really is lovely!!! and please do tell me what you think regarding real or not, thanks, Judy
UPDATE...........Jewels1900 has confirmed this ring is a fake!!
