Citrine and Peridot may not be the most valuable or prized gemstones but put beside each other as they are in this 14k yellow gold ring, they sure have impact. What a happy, summery combination of colours!
We located this pretty ring as we strolled a local antique mall last week. Its bright colours jumped out at us where it was hidden amongst duller jewels in a glass showcase. By our ring-sizer, it's a size 6, with inner diameter of 16mm. The very solid 14k yellow gold band is just over 2mm thick so re-sizing should be easy if needed.
The super clear peridot and the citrines on either side of it each have a diameter of just under 1/4" ... large stones. The span east to west across the top of the ring is 3/4" long. The quality made mount for the stones sits 1/4" above your finger. The stones are set in a separate open backed mount which probably allows for their brilliance as the light gets through top to bottom of each stone.
Looking through a loupe, I see nothing but lovely faceting on each stone ie. no chips, cracks or otherwise. This is a truly attractive and eye-catching ring that will brighten the wearer's day. Will that be you?
