The richness of the gold, and the substantial nature of this mid-20th century French ring (over 1/4 oz of 18kt gold), cradling a 0.22ct diamond, and 4 calibre-cut accent rubies, combine to create an immediate sense of richness and luxury. It's a beautiful, and classic French-hallmarked band ring, that really could either be worn by a woman or a man, as a unique engagement ring or a fabulous dress ring. Classic, elegant, and just plain breathtaking.
Total weight of this substantial ring is 7.9 grams. The center, round brilliant cut diamond is bezel-set, and weighs approximately 0.22ct. Color and clarity is G/VS2. (Weights and grading estimated, as permitted by mounting). The ring is hallmarked, on the outer edge of the band as usual with French marks, with the eagle head denoting 18kt gold. An additional maker's mark is stamped next to the eagle head, and several numerical identification marks engraved inside the band. The four natural accent rubies measure approximately 2 x 2 mm each. The ring size is 6.5, and can be resized by your jeweler. The band is a "double" style hoop, with a center channel, leading up to flared shoulders, and the design continues with each side of the band forming a side of the bezel. Maximum width at top of the setting is 5/16". The ring is in excellent vintage condition.
This stunning French-made ring will arrive in a fine quality presentation box.
