    Condition Notes: There are some intriguing beauties here! A little treasure trove of history, starting with the Georgian heart and crown ring, which amazingly comes to us from the early 1800s. Perhaps the oldest item in this offering, it shows damage to the enamel and has a personalized engraving on the reverse stating "U to A, 2 5, 1803." Tests as silver-topped 10k rose gold. Size is approximate, shank is out-of-round. The second ring shows a painted sepia-tone funerary image of a woman placing a wreath on a tomb upon which two doves sit. Dates to the 19th century. Metal tests 10k rose gold, evidence the ring has been reshanked. Scratches to the mineral crystal. The blackamoor cameo ring is missing three rose-cut diamonds. Showing a chip on the very bottom (white part). Rubies show abrasion. Bezel is tarnished or showing a layer of black oxidized finish. Metal tests 14k gold.
