Portuguese chrysoberyl ring

Luscious Portuguese chrysoberyl ring, circa 1780. The domed navatte-shaped high carat gold ring is set with vibrant sea-green chrysoberyl in foiled and closed back settings. The gold bead detail is typical of Portuguese jewels from the late 18th century. The ring is size M [US 6] and the head of the ring measures 1 and 1/4 inches by one inch. Fine quality, gloriously intense colour, immaculate. Imagine how it would have sparkled in candlelight.
