Jewelry embolized with Russian Imperial eagle was exclusively commissioned by the Cabinet of His Majesty. Such jewels were never sold in jewelry shops to the general public. Similar to medals and orders, jewels with Imperial insignia were given by the Tsar in appreciation of loyal service, and every piece was accompanied by an award certificate. It was the highest horner for a serviceman to receive a diamond ring from the Tsar.
Rings are the rarest category of the Russian Imperial presentation jewelry.
Here is a passage from The Russian Imperial Award System 1894-1917 by Ulla Tillander-Godenhielm (page 196):
” Very few of the rings presented from the Cabinet of His Imperial Majesty during the reign under study have survived… Presentation rings decorated with imperial double-headed eagles in diamonds ranged in price from 30 to 530 rubles. The costliest was set with brilliant-cut diamonds, whereas the lower-priced ones had an only minimal decoration in rose-cut diamonds… The following table illustrates the various types of rings presented, their value, and the ranks or positions held by the various persons who received them.
