This vintage amber ring is stamped 333 on the inside of the shank for 8 karat gold, a standard most often associated with Germany, and weighs 3.5 grams. The ring has modern clean lines and is set with an convex, oval piece of orange - brown translucent amber with colorful inclusions that give it a fabulous, warm, glow. The face of the ring measures about eleven sixteenths of an inch from north to south and three eighths of an inch across. The band tapers from seven sixteenths of an inch to one eighth of an inch at the center back. There are some light fissures in the amber that we think are properties of the amber piece as opposed to damage and the ring is in excellent vintage condition with minor wear that does not detract. This unusual ring is size 4 1/2 and looks wonderful on a slender finger.
