Vintage 18K White Gold Emerald Ring. This ring has been a treasure for 55 years by someone who received it from a relative in Italy when they were young. Marked 750 for 18K gold, it also shows some illegible marks that I cannot make out, however it does not spell Italy. Clearly it is european crafted but not necessarily made in Italy. It has a unusual double shank with a finely grooved texture and scalloped shape outline on both outer sides of each shank. I have never come across this setting style before. Quite unique, beautiful and interesting.
The Emerald is a natural earth mined .30 Cts and appears to have been oiled when viewed under a microscope. 'Oiled' is a treatment that has been used on emeralds to smooth out the appearance of the stone. This treatment has been used for centuries and is still being done today on natural earth mined emeralds.
