Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: Sold without reserve.

Possibly 15th-16th century.

The hammered flat gold band on this simple ring is decorated with hatchings and set with an ellipsoid bezel holding a cabochon garnet. Small rectangular gold pieces define the shoulders of the ring, where bezel meets hoop. The red of the garnet may indicate the ring was given as a love token.

Invaluable will bid on your behalf as much as necessary to ensure that you meet the reserve price or that you remain in the lead, up to your maximum. The bidder who has submitted the highest bid wins the lot, provided the bid exceeds the reserve price.

Provenance: formerly the property of a European private collector.
