This extraordinary paste cab is the most gorgeous robin's egg blue. I adore this deep basket style rose gold setting and is one of the nicest rose gold Victorian mounts I have had. It lays low of the finger and is so attractive..
Although is is a paste stone, it looks exactly like genuine Persian Turquoise. The setting is Fabulous and is a gorgeous tested 15K Rose gold basket setting. The cab is large at 15mm x 15mm x 8mm deep. This is equivalent to a 17 ` 18 carat cabochon stone. It is safely bezel set in a very rose colored gold. The gold has professionally tested for 15K by myself and my long time bench jeweler. The setting is just lovely and the cabochon is not only large on the face, but is very deep in the setting. Across the face, the ring measures 5/8" x 5/8". It is a US Size 6 1/4 and weighs 3 grams on the dot.
The ring is in pristine antique condition with no apologies to be made. There is not a single scratch to this cab....
The ring has no hallmarks but is European. It is Circa 1880 and again, Mint condition. The color is true to the photos and the gold very rosy.. It sits low on the finger and is currently a US size 6 1/4. It can easily be sized up or down at least 2 full sizes. A beautiful classy and Impressive Victorian ring. I have searched all over the internet and can find nothing like it. It is such an impressive looking simple but gorgeous ring. Nobody will ever know this is not Persian turquoise, except you.. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
Please Note: I love it the way it is and frankly it is very reasonably priced. If you would like to replace the paste cab with one of your favorite stones this would be a piece of cake for any experienced bench jeweler. The price is well below what the mount alone would cost.
