A gorgeous ring boasting one juicy carnelian gemstone!

The polished and faceted carnelian is semi-translucent and has a beautiful vitreous lustre at varying angles. Sitting either side of carnelian is gold geometric-form shoulders, their placed on an angle which adds a further dimension to ring. A solid rounded 2mm wide band makes up the rest of ring. Head of ring measures 18.10mm north to south.
