This extraordinary antique ring is rendered in lustrous sterling silver and features beautiful carved jade.
We have never seen a ring quite like this one before.
It has a certain Asiatic style, compounded by intricate and unusual details.
As you can see, the shoulders (or sides) of the ring are characterized by dragons while the sides are further accented with applied shapes and swirls.
The ring has been professionally tested to ensure the purity of the silver.
It really is the beautiful Kelly-green jade that catches the eye.
You will notice that the jade shows some wear and darkening, as well as several white-toned striations and inclusions.
These slight imperfections are definitely a testament to the ring's age and add greatly to the exotic aesthetic.
The jade is carved with a floral motif and features simple detail with a few pierced accents.
You will notice that the under-gallery remains open, allowing light to travel through the piercings and light-colored inclusions in the jade, giving it a certain "inner-glow".
While the sterling shows some age expected oxidization, the darkening gives the dragon motif a fantastic look of depth and dimension.
Despite some minor scratching and wear, this wonderfully unique ring remains in good antique condition.
