This vintage ring features a large octagonal orange carnelian stone in a high 9 karat yellow gold bezel setting. The angular form of the ring is softened by slightly rounded corners on each of the eight sides. The setting is 5 mm high north and south and 7 mm high east and west. This makes the ring slightly rounded to contour the finger so the ring extremely comfortable to wear. The band has open Y shaped shoulders that taper to a single band.
The band is marked "9ct" and has a maker's mark. The only letter I can read is the letter "T". It tested as 10 karat gold.
The carnelian stone measures 16 mm x 14 mm. The ring weighs 5.2 grams and is a size 7.
