A recent purchase for a very good price......someone has said that we are not to discuss price now........is this true??
Anyway, I was really surprised when this ring arrived as I expected it to look like Picture 1, which I thought might have been Carnelian........
Took the ring outside in shaded light and Picture 2&3 is what happened!!
I knew I had seen this effect before as I had solved a mystery for it, but could not for the life of me remember what it was called!!!
Started searching google and eventually found the Dragon's Breath again.
Would date to 1920s/30s I would think.
Hallmarked STERLING, unknown maker......
Certainly Arts and Crafts with the double split shank and the little leaf? decoration on each side......
I really enjoy having this ring......it is just so pretty and is a pinky ring. I hope you like seeing it, and all comments or thoughts welcome.
I will post a link in comments to a site that explains Dragon's Breath .
