Antique Mother-of-Pearl Chinese Gaming Counter Gold Ring

This ring features an antique, mother-of-pearl Chinese gambling counter with motifs dating back to the 18th century. This piece was originally carved in China for export to Britain. The British used these mother of pearl pieces much like we would use a poker chip. (Please refer to the history of the gaming counter, shown along with additional photographs of this piece.)

Each gaming counter is finely engraved and is set in a handmade 18k yellow gold and blackened silver mounting inspired by the architecture of Ancient China. Two black ceramic bands, for wear on both sides of this ring, are included.

Handmade by our jewelers in Los Angeles.

Available in Ring Sizes: 5-9
