Old ring in 18Kt yellow gold and pink gold (back and ring) hallmark: owl, and 9Kt (set) decorated with a fixed under glass depicting a fox's head. The fixed under glass consists of a colorless glass cut into a dome engraved and painted from below. Old pin reassembled into a ring by our workshop. Victorian work, probably English, for the original pin. Gross weight: 4.27g Height: 1.80 cm Width: 1.40 cm Finger size: 53 (diameter 16.90/US 6.50). Condition: very slight micro scratches and oxidation on the gold parts, slight wear of the setting, very slight abrasion of the glass, see photos. Did you know ? The “fixed under glass”, in English “Essex glass”, has nothing to do with the county of Essex! The technique is said to have been imported from the European continent to England by Thomas Cook in the 1860s. At the same time there lived a recognized miniature painter and favorite of the Queen Victoria named William Essex. It didn't take much for the amalgamation to take place, people thinking that these delicate paintings were the work of the artist, and... the name stuck! All our old rings.

Authentication & Certification

Charlotte Rey and Anne Borde help individuals who ask themselves a thousand questions when selling their jewelry(s). How much is it worth on the market? Is it solid gold or gold plated? How to identify stones? And, after all, what if it came from a prestigious house?

With the jewel in hand, the founders of Castafiore determine the nature of the materials, the weight of the gold, the carats of the stones, etc. They are also looking for the trace of a hallmark, a sign of a possible renowned jeweler.

This expertise then gives rise to a digital certificate of authenticity registered in the Blockchain (GoodsID), in other words traceable and unfalsifiable; it will accompany the jewel throughout its existence, over the course of its owners.



Anne Borde worked for 30 years in the world of auctioneers and auctions, notably in Drouot. She has inventoried countless collections and estates; she had thousands of objects in her hands which she examined from every angle. His sharp eye misses no nugget.
