This stunning ring has an extremely large and oh so gorgeous, high-domed cabochon lapis lazuli stone of deep blue with a plethora of gold highlights, making the ring truly dazzling when it catches the light. The flecks of gold in the stone are actually inclusions of pyrites, a naturally occurring mineral. The lapis lazuli stone is set in a twisted wire 14 karat yellow gold eight prong setting which accentuates the gold toned sparkles.
The stone measures 25 mm x 19 mm x 9.61 mm (1 inch x 6/8 inches x 3/8 inches). The ring sits about 15 mm off the finger, making it a "statement" ring! Even though the stone is large it sits comfortably on the finger because the setting is gently curved and arched so the ring does not turn. The band is not marked, but it tested as 14 karat gold.
The ring weighs 11.9 grams and is a size 6 1/2 US. It is in wonderful condition.
