The ring was made in St. Petersburg by Faberge's workmaster Vladimir Solovyov.
It is a very finely crafted heavy ring. Weight 12 g. Ring size 13 (inside diameter 22,5 mm).
Marked with 56 zolotniks standard (14K -583 gold) / St. Petersburg assay office, and workmaster's initials 'BC' for Vladimir Solovyov.
