Antique Style Victorian "Marie Antoinette" exquisite blush pink glass pearl, fire opal and rhinestones HUGE "statement" ring--would have looked right at home on Marie Antoinette's finger! This completely handmade ring is wonderfully wearable and showcases some of my finest pink and sparkling champagne vintage stones and findings.....I designed and created this beautiful and elaborate antique Victorian/Edwardian style ring using mostly antique components and hand finished/burnished brass parts & filigree.
PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY before asking questions! All details about sizing, etc. are addressed here, so it's very important to READ all of this...thank you :-) ALSO PLEASE NOTE this is a individually made-by-hand-to-order item, and there is a five week completion time BEFORE shipment, if this presents a problem for you please do not purchase.
As a long-time antique clothing and jewelry collector, I'm inspired to create antique/vintage-style jewelry that has the superb old elements and rare vintage glass stones and beads I have gathered over the years....All of the pieces I do are individually hand made and incorporate as many of the antique elements as possible, plus durable yet authentic brass fittings that I have hand finished with that "aged" look.As a long-time antique clothing and jewelry collector, I'm inspired to create antique/vintage-style jewelry that has the superb old elements and rare vintage glass stones and beads I have gathered over the years....All of the pieces I do are individually hand made and incorporate as many of the antique elements as possible, plus durable yet authentic brass fittings that I have hand finished with that "aged" look. Often my pieces are one of a kind, however I've found that when I have a small supply of vintage stones or elements, it's nice to be able to keep more than one person happy by creating limited editions...that way more people have a chance at owning something they particularly love!
I must take a moment to say THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who've become fans of my work...I love to know that my pieces inspire and delight others and am so appreciative of your wonderful encouragement. :-) Am also very proud to have created the jewelry for America's Got Talent finalist and extraordinary performer, Prince Poppycock, for his last four performances on NBC's AGT during August and September, 2010!

This exquisite, BIG ring is fashioned from vintage very substantial burnished rich solid brass parts patterned with intricate antique Rococo designs, with an exquisite oval blush pink glass pearl cab in the center that is framed & enclosed by a beautiful vintage intricate filigree setting, flanked by and overlaid with tiny rococo brass filigree and two tiny cupids, and further accented by small oval blush pink glass pearl cabochons, small oval pink glass fire opals and tiny sparkly pinky-champagne glittering rhinestones set in brass--- so feminine and pretty.... The fabulous centerpiece is so reminiscent of Marie Antoinette's style and her love of pink & gold; all of the stones have such a wonderful glow to them. Because pearls are so delicate, I recommend this ring for "special occasion" wear only--the finish on pearls is easily scratched so care must be taken when wearing them, and this ring would not be suitable for daily wear because of that. As shown, this ring is adjustable from about a 5 size up to about an 8....this can be done by simple stretching of the back to fit the individual finger.....however if you require a size 8.5--13, please be aware that I will be adding extra brass filigree to the ring to make it fit that size range comfortably, before shipping. Please be sure to select the required basic size when purchasing so I can preadjust it for you.
Since it's extremely imposing---almost 2" from top to bottom-- and reaches quite well past the knuckle on most hands, this would be great worn on the middle or first finger....This is quite a substantial ring, so if you have very small hands, please consider how & if it will suit you---I won't be responsible for it "looking too big" on you, or appearing a different shade on your monitor than it does in real life, etc.....nor do I accept returns or do exchanges.
The stones & findings I use in my jewelry are all wonderfully unique & mostly vintage, and come from my ever-growing stock of fine antique, rare and vintage beauties---am always searching for gorgeous old elements to recreate that fabulous old antique look....Very comfortable & substantial on, and I always "test run" my jewelry to make sure it's very durable and sturdy....this one is a great addition to any vintage and antique lover's costume jewelry collection!
