   This is a rather massive silver ring in a shape of a flower with central turquoise inset. It is made in elaborated and meticulous manner, combining granulation and filigree techniques. The upper part is decorated by granulation with small silver pellets (grains) arranged in two circles. Each of them is enclosed by very fine silver wire adding to the overall opulent effect.

   The design of the ring is taken from the examples from the 18th and 19th centuries when jewellery in general tended to be rather massive. It can be dated at the first decades of the 20th century, and it was probably made by one of the jewelers from Kotor.
