This is a sterling silver ring with an interesting rutilated quartz gemstone. The ring is a size 7.5 and features rose cut rutilated quartz. The gemstone is rose cut on both sides. The ring is faintly marked 925 on the inside of the ring in the setting around the stone. I have polished the silver and the ring is in clean and shiny condition with some patina. The ring appears to be handmade because of the construction and you can see carve marks in the silver. Under magnification, you can see nicks in the band which indicate that this ring was loved and worn a lot. These marks do not take away from the look of the ring when worn.
Ring size 7.5 on ring sizer. The gemstone measures 15mm in diameter (just under the size of a dime). The ring weighs 8.01 grams.
Rutilated quartz is also known as Venus-hair stone because of the needlelike rutile crystals which in this ring are golden yellow. There are lots of interesting organic inclusions in this stone which make it interesting for the eye.
