Lovely antique Victorian 10k solid gold citrine ring by Ostby & Barton. It has a beautiful 3D effect with colored gold accents - the bottom layer is scalloped and set with 8 seed pearls, one on each petal, and then a textured green gold flower is applied on top of that set with the old cut citrine which has a deep goldenrod to orange color.Ostby & Barton company was established in 1879 making their pieces interesting and collectible in their own right for their beautiful craftsmanship. But further interest in these pieces is due to the face that the co-owner of the company, Ostby sadly perished on the Titanic, making it appealing to collectors in that area as well. Large size to the ring face in this very unique setting accented by the colored gold and lovely floral design. Currently about a size 8.
The ring face is 15mm and the citrine is about 4.5mm in diameter. It stands 7mm tall off the finger with the stacked layers.
It weighs 2.7 grams. Hallmarked OB 10k inside the band. All my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. The facet edges of the stone have a few tiny scuffs seen under magnification only, but this is not visible to the eye. The gold work is beautiful with just a bit of age appropriate surface wear.Inside the back of the ring face there is a rim of gold that is a bit uneven, it is just the opposite side of the bezel and it is hidden within the ring face but you might see it when studying the inside back of the ring. It is striking to wear. Thanks so much for looking! The item "Antique Ostby Barton Seed PEARL Old Cut Orange CITRINE 10k Gold Ring Floral Rare" is in sale since Wednesday, October 27, 2021.
