Antique Bishop’s Ring*

Item Description

Bishop’s ring in 18ct. gold featuring a large claw-set oval amethyst stone surrounded by an octagonal ring of old-cut diamonds.

Ornately crafted, as is the custom with rings of this sort, and richly decorated with fine scrollwork, the shoulders having a cross on one side and a chalice on the other.

Further decoration extends most of the way around the shank on all but the innermost surface.

Originally dating from circa 1860 but inscribed inside the shank with the date 10-4-32, presumably marking a later date when it was gifted.

The U.K. ring size is a little under ‘U’.

N.B.  Bishops traditionally receive Episcopal rings such as these at a ceremony marking their consecration and wear them on the third finger of the right hand, signifying that they are wedded to the Church.
