Description : Designed as a ring of diamonds encircling a line of diamonds that ends in a pearl at either end. Diamonds and pearls were immensely popular from the last 1/4 of the 19th century. They are set in silver over gold, typical of the period. The diamonds within the ring are substantially larger than the other diamonds and interestingly, each is of a different color - the largest in the center is a pink diamond, flanked on either side by a green diamond and a blue diamond. Some smaller diamonds in the circle are yellow and orange.
Many diamonds are cushion cut and all have relatively large tables as is typical of the old European cut of the period.
Workmanship is exceptionally good. Carl Bacher, the maker was the son of Joseph Bacher, a well-known and very highly regarded family of jewellers in Vienna, Austria.
Comes in original, fitted box with outside brown leather and blue silk and velvet within.

Marks and Metal: Pin has initials of maker CB and another mark that looks like an 'A' which indicates Vienna/Wien Austria assay office. (see page 27 World Hallmarks Volume I by Whetstone, Niklewicz and Matula. ) Gold was tested with Auracle AGT3 electronic tester to confirm that it is at least 14ct.

Condition: Good with negligible wear commensurate with age and use. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer.
