14K tiger's eye cameo, Circa 1880
This 1880s ring is a classic piece featuring an oval quartz cameo made of tiger's eye. Cameo was very popular throughout the Victorian era across social classes.

The intricate detailing around the band remains in very good condition over 200 years later with only minor scratches on the shank of the ring. An extraordinary piece, the ring also maintains a "14K L.E.N." hallmark, potentially signifying the initials of the jeweler. The ring weighs 9.19 g and is 11.22 ctw in total carat weight. It is size 9.5, but is resizable. The ring dimensions are 7/8" x 5/8" x 1/4" in.
