Coral ring


A gold ring with a carved coral head. The gold mount is done en quatre couleurs, a technique which allows the gold to change colour to white, red, green and blue. The coral carving is of an African head, wearing an Arab style turban. The head dates from the 17th century and the gold ring from the 19th century.
