This ring features a rubover set cushion shaped golden topaz, between two oval cut garnets. The three stone gallery is joined to foliate shoulders and an ornately carved band.
The band is stamped with a maker's mark of ET, for Sir Edward Thomason. Thomason was a factory owner and inventor. He began in the 1790s making buttons, then jewellery, then by 1807 he was making medals. Thomason was knighted by William IV in 1832, but perhaps his most notable achievements are in his inventions. He invented and trialled a range of mechanical devices, but the most famous is his patented design for the Thomason corkscrew, which is still widely used today.
This ring's decoration even continues beyond what others would see, with ornate pattern work added to the backing of the topaz setting, for the owner alone to enjoy.
Circa early 19th Century this ring has been very well cared for over the centuries and is in good condition.
This ring's band is wide and short, and measures close to N at its closest point, and as Q on its widest. It fits comfortably like a P.
Please note that due to the ornate band pattern this ring is excluded from our Free Resizing service.
