On offer in excellent, "pre-loved" condition is this superb, antique gold ring. Crafted from 9ct yellow gold and set with a genuine Mother Of Pearl stone which has been lovingly engraved with a portrait of the Greek god, Apollo, with lyre. The stone is securely set in a raised mount which is beautifully decorated with a scroll composition, in turn the setting sits on top of a quality , thick shank which shows no signs of thinning or wear.Clearly impressed internally: 9ct GOLD. A stunning, antique ring which is quite unusual.
Invented by the god Hermes and attributed to Apollo, symbolizing wisdom and moderation. According to Greek myth, Apollo took the lyre upon his left arm and tried each string with the key.
Awesomely it sounded at the touch of the god, while he sang sweetly to it's note. This lovely ring is offered in excellent antique condition. At sometime in it's history, some one has scratched their initials (BH) to the back of the stone. The scratching is light and is of no detriment.
There are also some light scratching to the shank internally... An obvious attempt at gold testing.
Again, this is no detriment to the ring.
