Originally a pendant, this wonderful micromosaic of a dog has been converted into a ring.
Most Victorian era micromosaics we see today, like this one, were made in Italy where this technique was created and perfected, and they were a popular souvenir purchase when traveling.
These micromosaics depicted a range of subjects, most commonly sites like the Colosseum or the Roman Forum. Micromosaics depicting animals were less common, but I always seek them out!
Ring band and setting 14k.
Such a special, sweet piece for the antique jewelry enthusiast who also adores animals (like me!).
Ring box is for display only and is not included with this listing.
+++ Measurements +++

Lovely condition overall with some minor age-related wear. A couple of small dings in the frame. The stone has some faint scratches and spot of faint color variation, but these are not noticeable when worn.
