This lovely jade ring offers a beautiful cabochon set in a custom 14K yellow gold mount. Green jade offers not only good looks but the power of peace, energy and wisdom, too.
Offering a substantial 14K mount weighing approximately 7 grams itself, the ring is fitted with a nicely sized oval cabochon measuring 16.5x12.8mm. The cabochon is securely prong set onto a thick gold bed with 8 prongs. The filigree surround is ornate and measures just under 1" tall by just over 3/4" wide (23.5x21mm). As the mount is handcrafted, the filigree surround is just slightly asymmetrical, only noticeable if examined and measured very closely.
The shank measures 3.5mm at the shoulders, each side having a buckle motif, symbolic of eternal fidelity and loyalty. The ring offers an elegant presentation on the hand, rising off the finger just under 1/2". The shank is thick at 3mm and features an engraved finish. The shank is sized at a 6.5 US and is hallmarked "14K". The ring weighs 8.3 grams. With current gold prices hovering in the $1,500/troy ounce range, we estimate the gold content value of the mount alone at approximately $200.
We estimate the age of this ring to be 1970's-1980's. The cabochon exhibits no chips or cracks. It is firmly seated with no rattling. Its actual hue is very close to our photos. The stone has not been submitted for GIA testing but it likely has been heat treated in some manner. However, its pastoral green hue magically illuminates the hand. The ring shank is in excellent condition and without issue. It appears to be in its original size 6.5 US, and can easily be resized up or down. This is a fabulous ring in a great size suitable for any finger -- ring, middle or forefinger. We love the beauty of this jade stone, but the ring mount is also a great candidate for use in remounting your favorite cabochon that may be in need of a new design. We guarantee you won't find another 14K ring mount of this stature in this price range even at wholesale.
