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 oval, orange - brown translucent amber cabochon with colorful inclusions that give it a fabulous warm glow. The face of the ring measures about .687 inches from north to south and .375 inches across. The band tapers from .437 inches to .125 inches at the center back. There are some light fissures in the amber that we believe are properties of the amber and not damage and the ring is in excellent vintage condition with minor wear that does not detract. This unusual ring is size 4.5 and looks wonderful on a slender finger.
