A bold pear shaped cabochon garnet 15ct gold ring. It has a lovely wavy shank which is original. It was made circa 1860 when garnets were highly popular. During that time there was a fashion for jewellery from the sixteenth century called the “Holbeinesque period” after Holbein who was Elizabeth the 1st’s court painter. The predominant colours were red and green that appeared in the garments, the textiles and the jewellery in the form of garnet and emerald carbuncles.
