Known as trilogy rings, three stone rings are rich in sentiment. Often featuring three diamonds, the first stone is said to represent the present, the second represents the past and the third represents the future. It's no wonder that these rings are often used as engagement and wedding rings!
This particular trilogy ring dates to 1913 and is such a wonderful wearable piece of history. It has three turquoise cabochons of varying shades of green and blue, set in hallmarked 9ct rose gold. The ring's rose gold shoulders sweep around the turquoise and connect to either side of the centre stone, giving the ring a lovely smooth shape.
The ring has British hallmarks inside the shank for Chester, 9ct gold and the date letter N for 1913. There is also a marker's mark inside the shank but the mark is now rubbed and hard to make out. It looks like it could possible be T&C or I&C.
Ring size - approx a US 9 / approx a UK R-R 1/2
The centre turquoise measures approx 3.5mm in diameter and the two outer turquoise measures approx 3mm in diameter. The ring shank is approx 2mm wide at the back of the ring. The ring weighs approx 1.5g in total.
Condition - The ring does show signs of age and wear, both to the gold and the turquoise stones. Two of the turquoise stones have a slight milgrain design to the edge of the gold settings, one of the outer turqoise stones doesn't, we think this might be becuase it has been replaced or the stone has been reset at some point in time. There is some surface wear to the gold and turquoise due to age and wear and there are also what look to be some light hand engravings to the inside of the face of the ring, these look like numbers and letters, these are not visible when the ring is being worn. The turquoise stones vary naturally in colour and patterns.
