|A perfect image of a "Westie", bright eyed and impish. The white terrier with perky ears, has a look as if he were saying "what did I do now?" The ring, an Essex Crystal or Reverse Crystal Intaglio was carved in reverse on the back of the crystal and done with excellent skill. Notice the tufts of the dog's hair and its endearing features. The art of reverse crystal carving into the depth of the stone creates a three dimensional image. See image 4 and 5. Color and detail were painted after the crystal was engraved. Around this dog is the prize he deserves, a ring of small diamonds. Set in 18kt gold, this ring is as winsome and the pet it portrays. This ring can be sized. Condition is Fine|
