These pieces were purchased together at the Sablon Market in Belgium and the stone colors are close to identical. The ring is a U.S. Size 9.5 and the stone is a nice shiny polished cabochon and large at 17mm x 12mm. The earrings are on a french wire and the carnelian is set in a decorative bezel setting with a drop of .75". All pieces are marked 925 indicating the silver content as sterling. The set is in very good vintage condition.
Carnelian is an orange-colored variety of Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. Its color varies from pale pinkish-orange to a deep rusty brown, though it is most known as orange and red-orange. It is said that Carnelian Stones are stones of action, that will give you the courage and confidence to move forward on a new path in life.
