How captivating is this gorgeous ring? It was crafted around the 1940's in England in the classic Art Deco style of a geometric cluster. It has no hallmarks so we carefully acid tested it and it is 18 carat gold, weighing 2.6 grams. It is size US 6 1/2 and UK N at the moment and can be sized up or down. Please get in touch to check before purchasing, we will make sure to check if it can fit you perfectly.
The top of the ring measures .34 by 0.33 inched. It sits 4.20 mm up off the finger, lovely and low.
The simply stunning natural emerald immediately draws your attention, it's amazing colour deeply saturated and intense ….emerald green !! Yes, that is what emerald green is all about and the best emerald green to that, we used no filters in our photographs at all. It has a few moss like inclusions, typical of emeralds, called " jardin " in French, as they do look like a minute garden. It is symbolic of balance, healing and fertility, as well as steadfast bond, making it a wonderfully romantic gem for an engagement ring. The perfectly square gemstone measures 3.55 by 3.55mm, estimated 0.26 carats. It is surrounded by twelve eight cut diamonds estimated at 0.36 carats together. The diamonds are lovely and white, framing the emerald with icy sparkle and adding to the sheer fabulousness of this ring. In the trade, we have a name that we use for this sort of a ring; we say it is " gemmy ". The reason is that the way it is designed and made it makes you see and appreciate only it's superb gems. Even though it is held within a very secure gold setting, this takes a secondary role, surrounding the diamonds in such a way that the metal of the shank gets lost on the viewer. It lets these gems speak out loud so that it really is hard not to stare. Really and truly, I am out of a job trying to describe it any further to you, I think I will let this one talk by itself :)
