Colin Terris ring
« on: August 13, 2008, 07:14:08 AM »

Is it right that Colin Terris made rings like this one? If so, did he sign them, or are we really talking about Caithness general production?

R27 designed by Lucia Polanski. Stone maker depending on hallmark, so Colin Terris had nothing to do with it directly. Will tell seller the same.

I see the seller added it had a 76 Cox Jewellery hallmark, so just standard production with the possibility of a left over PH stone.

Love the statements like "This is a genuine Colin Terris Piece?"  "Coling Terris?" and so on......
