Vintage Peridot & Rubellite Ring in 14K
Wow. And that's just the beginning. To look at this ring who would ever think it's 60 - 70 years old. The Hawaii Estate reckons 1950s - 1960s. While in excellent condition overall, we did have the prong tips replaced on the main stone setting to make it more secure, and we asked our Goldsmith to do a light buff. Wow. Literally like new again, but with all the charm of yesteryear's design and craftsmanship.
This lovely ring features at its center a beautiful Peridot. The stone measures 7mm x 5mm and has a weight of .80 Carat. Flanking the Peridot are two very, very pretty Pink Rubellite, each measuring 5mm x 3mm for a weight of approximately .50 (1/2) Carat total for a total gemstone weight of approximately 1.3 Carats. A nice, nice ring and surprisingly, perhaps one of the most contrasting yet complimenting color combinations we've seen in a long while. Just dazzling.
The stones are set in a beautiful 14K Yellow Gold setting. On each shoulder there's a flowing cascade reminiscent in form to draping Wisteria. Beautiful attention to detail and a lovely design.
This fine ring is just a smidge below a size 6 and has a nice weight of 2.46 grams.
