Estate Massive And Luminous Carnelian Cabochon In 14K Basket Setting
One of our best-priced Deals!!
A massive Carnelian Cabochon measuring 27mm x 20mm x 5.8mm as mounted. Approximately 30 Carats. No dyes, fillers, or infusions. Next, a consistent smoothness and evenness of color, with strong saturation of tone and hue. Next, it is mounted in a finely crafted 14K basket setting accented by a spiral twist and fine milgraining. Finally, the cabochon is finely finished with a gleaming high polish on front and back. This ring and this stone screams finery. We are told by the previous owner that this ring was a gift from an Aunt who collected fine jewelry and purchased this piece in the 1990s at a dear price.
We sometimes happen upon like-to-like comparisons for our items, and we did here. So we've included a listing from the prestigious 1stDibs Website. Both rings are similar in size with the face of both rings measuring about 1.25 (1 1/4) inches. But we think everyone will agree that at one-quarter the price of theirs, ours just may be the better buy.
This ring is a 6.5 (6 1/2) and has a weight of 10.4 grams.
