A wonderful and rare Portuguese reliquary ring crafted in the 18th century from silver and gold. It features a wooden icon of "Nossa Senhora" (Our Lady) behind a quartz crystal, framed by a frieze of "minas novas" (quartz), beautifully engraved on the reverse and sitting on an ornate band.
The ring has been crafted in silver and 18k yellow gold (tests). The pear shaped face measures approximately 12.6mm tall by 11mm at its widest. This ring fits like a size 5 and weighs 2.2g. Wear commensurate with age and use, scratches to the crystal - there is a chip at the top of the central quartz pear. The price has been adjusted accordingly. You will receive the pictured ring.
