19th Century French Diamond Pansy Ring

The faintest hint of pink - along with growth lines - make this coral slab especially beautiful. A diamond pansy - a riff on "pensée", or "thought", aka "think of me" has been applied to the front. Seed pearls frame the whole thing, and French hallmarks appear on the back of the band.
