Six Gentlemen's Rings

Auction: American Furniture & Decorative Arts - 3104T Location: Marlborough Date / Time: May 31, 2018 2:00PM


Six Gentlemen's Rings, including marked silver examples, one carved bone with a Union shield, another carved from stone, two with similar allegorical scene, one in the form of an engraved disk or shield with ancient characters, sizes vary.

Note: "When it comes to jewelry, I'm a big believer in more is more and the bigger, the better. The trick is to wear it without looking like a wannabe rapper, a cheesy gangster, or a carnival barker. Each of these rings has some point of interest, and while large, they're unusual enough that they're more likely to provoke interest than disdain." - Jonathan Soroff
Estimate $50-100
