An exceptionally rare sterling silver Austro-Hungarian ring with tricolor enamel, crowned garnets, and turquoise cabochons, this ring has a certain allure to it. Unlike many of the other jewels from this period that I’ve seen, the three dimensionality of the face echoes gothic topography, which was all the rage in the 1850’s. The shank boasts a sensual scrolled shoulder, effortlessly fitted to the cruciform medallion. The glinting garnets and organic turquoise, accented by the white, red, and blue enamel, come together to accent the Eastern European mystique of the piece.
