The ring is made of gold, with a matte finish, gray guilloché enamel, and diamonds. It is designed in the Russian modern style of the 1910s, with a medieval version of the Byzantine double-headed eagle.
After the Byzantine empire had fallen, in the 15th century, Russia adopted the double-headed eagle as its state emblem. The design of this emblem was changed several times over the following centuries, but in the 1910s the medieval version was brought back in the decorative arts.
The ring comes with a copy of its original award certificate, signed by the head of the Cabinet Chamberlain of His Majesty's Court, and stamped with the ink seal of the Cabinet of Empress Maria Feodorovna.
