The sterling surround is outstanding. There is a roping detail around the stone and a lovely detail on the edge. Ring is size 5. It measures 1 5/8 inches front to back at the center front. It is marked Sterling on the band and signed LTB. This ring has some old patina and is in excellent condition.
