This stunning ring would have been worn by the past "Royal Matron" within the Order of the Amaranth, which is affiliated with the Masons. The oval black "stone" is believed to be either black glass or obsidian. It is embedded with a crown, a wreath, a star, a gavel, and four brilliant cut, 3 mm wide diamonds; all within an elaborate Victorian Revival design. The 10 Karat yellow gold setting is very fancy, with flowers and garland around the border. The top of the ring measures 1 1/4 inches long, 3/4 inches wide, and rises to a height of 1/4 inch above the finger. It is size 7. The inside of the band is impressed with "10K" and "Craft" for the manufacturer. This rare and beautiful item dates from between the 1920s and 1940s. The condition is excellent. There is no real sign of wear; no chips, cracks, scratches or other problems with the "stone." The gold is intact, with no dents, warps or breaks. The diamonds are all prong-set and in fine condition. There are no engravings. This item weighs .3 ounce.
