This lovely small jewelry Casket is charming and very unusual. It test sterling I was told, and the Lapis Gem stone is 1 1/4 inches long and 3/4 of an inch wide. The Cabochon is set in a bezel setting with a rope of silver around it. The inside is striped of the velvet that was there. The box is 2 1/2 inches long and just under 2 inches wide, The legs are just under 1/2 inch high. If you inlayed it with velvet there would still be room for a nice ring. (Or 20 loose diamonds?!) The legs are single pieces of silver, the top and the bottom is carved with many designs. On the back is a small hole where the design is off the size of pencil lead. +This little box weighs 31.5. Small, unusual, and beautiful, it would be a great gift. From the high Plain of Kansas!
