Art Deco sterling ring with polished carnelian stones and sparkling marcasites in a large format. This striking ring measures 1" tall by 5/8" in width and is size 9 or 9-1/4. The contoured front features two diagonal, brown carnelian stones that are framed with vertical and horizontal bands of marcasites; these bands have tiny beaded edges, a beautiful detail. Suitable for a woman or man, it makes a great statement on the hand. The condition is very good, with no chips, scratches, or missing stones. The back shows a little wear to the silver. I believe that it is German, and that the Germany mark was removed when the ring was enlarged in the past.
