This carnelian ring features a banded agate rectangular stone shaped in the form of a hardbound book. One half of the stone is a warm caramel color with cream and white bands flowing horizontally. The other half of the stone is a translucent rich red- brown with bands of darker brown flowing under the surface. A truly beautiful stone!
The carnelian is in an illusion bezel setting. There is actually a pin that runs through the stone to secure it to the setting. The ring has shoulders decorated with three long prongs. It is a high setting, sitting 1 cm off one's finger. It is hand wrought.
It is in amazing condition with only one tiny chip to the corner of the stone that cannot be seen without magnification.
The carnelian stone measures 22 mm x 17 mm. The ring is not marked but it tests as 10 karat gold and weighs 10.4 grams. It is a size 5 3/4 US.
