Antique Victorian Seed Pearl Sunburst or Flower Stick Pin Conversion Ring in 14k Gold
Converted from a tiny antique Victorian pin, this lovely Victorian seed pearl sunburst conversion ring is delicate but not small. Shaped as a daisy or sunburst, and set with a tiny prong set natural (not cultured) round pearl at the center.
Each ray or petal is set with three graduated natural pearl buttons, with the smallest ones toward the center. These tiny little marvels are bead-set, a technic popular in Victorian times. Most pearls are white, and some of the tiny half-pearls display a slight silver glow.
The setting circumference is 17mm in diameter, a little under 11/16″.
The center pearl is 1.8mm in diameter. The tiny half-pearls are estimated at 0.8MM in diameter. The largest ones are estimated at 1.2mm.
The ring size is 5.25 US. It can be sized.
A darling and unique ring made of solid 14k yellow gold. It is not marked and was carefully tested. The approximate gross weight is 2.5 grams.
The condition is excellent overall, and one tiny natural pearl is chipped, but this is not obvious when worn.
