This ring is a truly rare find.

    The center of the ring is a ceramic ( or celluloid) oval plate. It measures approx.15 tall x 10 mm wide and features a painted miniature picture of a young lady.  The picture was hand painted on an already existing one on the ceramic/ celluloid plate.

    The lady has a strawberry blond hair with a diamond as an earring. Originally she had vibrant blue eyes and pink lips, but the paint partially came off.  She also has a blue dress on.  The picture is secured with glass.

    The back of the ring shows that the picture is inserted and secured by an additional gold plate and held in place with 6 prongs.

    The picture is set in an 18 k white gold frame that is hand decorated with filigree and floral motives.

    The shank is soldered to the basket holding the art work. 

    The ring is size 8 and it weighs 5.2 grams.
