Twinkling little marcasite cover the face of this pretty ring. With a really pretty geometric design, the face is impressive. This dome style ring has a Sterling Silver top and a 14K Gold band which is original to the ring.
All of the marcasites are in place. The ring measures 1" x 5/8" across the face. It is currently a US size 4 1/2 however being the band is made of gold it easily can be sized up at least 2 sizes with ease. The ring weighs 4 grams and is in excellent antique condition. The only apology to make is that there is one marcasite that has a itsy bitsy nick however only noticeable with a loupe. I also see signs of where the ring was sized once, likely down but the perfect area to bring it back up if needed. That is only visible on the inside of the band, not the outside. The gold band has professionally tested for 14K and the Silver as Sterling. The patina inside of the ring is deep but I can see that most of the marcasites were open backed. I do not polish silver as I love it as is however this can certainly be polished if the new owner chooses. Circa 1915 this ring sits right on the Art Deco / Edwardian Period. European in Origin. Questions are always welcome.
