The tied rope decoration has two ‘tassels’, the lower border of each ornamented with a single Dutch cut diamond and a pear cut gemstone; one ruby and one sapphire, all collet set.

The 14ct rose gold posterior face is plain and unembellished, struck with the Russian hallmark for 14ct gold, or 56 zolotniks (56 female profile).
