This ring is crafted from silver and features a French silver hallmark - it is a crab with an assay office number between its legs. This mark was used by cities in France between 1838 and 1962. It was used to mark small items of 800 silver. It has been possible to date this ring to the 1940s because it is engraved on the inside of the band with the initial M.N. and the date 1.7.41. The ring features a statement sized, oval cut, blue glass stone with dramatic stepped silver shoulders on either side. The ring is a UK size 'M 1/2'.

The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:
- Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.
- Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.
- Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.
- Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.
- If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
