DAZZLING Victorian 2.92 Ct. Aquamarine/10k Ring, c.1875!
This dazzling ring boasts a large, fancy-cut oval aquamarine measuring 10.5 mm x 7.5 mm and weighing a calculated 2.92 carats! This stone is the sort that aquamarine lovers dream of; it is the most gorgeous shade of rich light blue with the sea-green undertone characteristic of the most prized of these special gemstones, and the color saturation is deep and even. It is also exceptionally faceted, with a double scissor-cut which flashes in any level of light!
The aquamarine is set with 12 elegantly-scalloped claws in a classic Victorian setting of 10k yellow gold (unmarked but tested). The shoulders are decorated with Eastlake-inspired engraving, tapering back to a substantial 5 mm wide shank. This ring has survived into the 21st century in exceptional, all-original condition, and the aquamarine is free of chips or scratches. It is a size 6, and appears to have never suffered re-sizing, but the plainness of the rear of the shank would allow for easy re-sizing up or down by a good lapidary.
Weighing in at 2.47 grams, this jewel looks spectacular on the hand, and just LOOK at the size and color of that aquamarine! It's delicate hue really reminds me that spring is coming, and will absolutely delight any lady who loves the finest in Victorian jewelry. It would also make a splendid gift for that special lady with a March birthday, as aquamarine is the birthstone for that month - or better yet, treat yourself to this beauty; you deserve it! This ring will be shipped in a gift box suitable for storing or giving. Do not miss this exquisite jewel; it is priced for quick sale, and USPS Priority shipping is FREE!
