A society belle

A society belle

A high carat gold portrait miniature ring, circa 1790. It contains a watercolour portrait of a young belle who gazes at the viewer with an air of self confidence. She has upswept hair threaded with pearl drapery. Her complexion is fashionably pale and she wears a rose-pink gown, the most fashionable colour of the day. The ring is size M and 1/2  [US 6 and 1/4 ] and the head of the ring measures 3/4 of an inch by 1/2 an inch. Well executed and immaculate.
