A stunningly simple design boasting a tantalizing peridot gem! The ring is made of 14ct rose gold and dates to around the 1980's. The ring has been custom handmade around the peridot which is a stunning faceted marquise cut measuring 15.82mm long x 7.20mm wide. Estimated weight of the peridot is 3.60 carats. Peridots of a larger size, (3cts and above) are becoming increasingly hard to find due to the rarity of finding larger crystals. The peridot colour is a vivid lime green and there are some small internal 'lily pad' inclusions indicative of natural earth-mined peridot, however an overall clean clarity to the naked eye. A four claw double collet setting displays the peridot beautifully, and an upswept 2.10mm wide shank makes up the rest of ring.
The ring has been xrf tested to 14ct gold, no stamps are seen.
