SOLD Victorian Blue Paste Half Hoop Stacking Ring
A pretty little paste half hoop ring from the mid Victorian period. The ring has nine little blue paste stones across the top, which cover the top of the finger, giving the appearance of a half eternity ring. Blue paste is an unusual choice and these seem to change color in different lights. In daylight they sparkle vibrantly and would be a lovely addition to any stacking collection. They are also perfect for 'something blue' on a wedding day. The stones are set in silver, while the band is 14kt rose gold.
