1930s Lion Head Ring Ruby Diamond Gold

Gentleman's 1930s lion head ring with a diamond in the mouth and ruby-set eyes mounted in 14-karat gold with maker's mark for Church & Co.  Behold a lion ring like no other.  Its appearance belies its vintage, the style is ageless and quite unique for this type of ring.  Notice the abundance of detail that there is on the lion's face. The expression is fearless and virile, regal, as a lion should look.  And then there is something there that is not often seen in lion head rings, the lion's mane extends along the sides of the shank, a token truth to a complete and well thought out design.  Makes a bold masculine statement  without having to resort to excessive bulk, elegant.  Here is a ring that will garner admiration and its owner will wear with pride.  This is no pussy cat!  Ruby-set eyes and a single round diamond weighing approximately 0.10 carat, tenaciously  gripped by its fangs.  There is an old saying, "If you see the fangs of a lion showing, don't think the lion is smiling."  For over three decades, Jacob's Diamond & Estate Jewelry has been in the business of selling a carefully curated collection of antique and estate jewelry
