Substantial very big and heavy antique ring by the Baltimore jeweler and decorative arts metalware maker Carl Schon. Not well known outside of
Baltimore, Schon worked in an Arts & Crafts and transitional/Art Deco style from the late 1890s until his death in 1923. Later Carl Schon pieces were
made by the firm which continued under his name. This piece is very early, circa 1920. It is marked with tiny initials. It has a very large cabochon
amethyst and two baroque pearls in a heavy cast silver setting with gold accents. It weighs 18 grams.
Ring size 7. Great size -- the top is 1 7/8 inches
long by 3/4 inch wide. Excellent condition. There is a tiny drop of yellowed glue under one pearl on the bottom; this is not visible when the ring is worn
and the pearl is secure. Photos enlarged to show detail.
