Definition of LOLLAPALOOZA: one that is extraordinarily impressive; also : an outstanding example.
This vintage 1980s jumbo sterling ring definitely qualifies as a 'lollapalooza'. It's something you'd see on a fashion runway. The chunky solid silver setting is a bold one in itself. But then you've got that rock-your-eyeballs huge clear crystal rhinestone that's like the 'Hope Diamond' of rhinestones. Look into it and you see more facet-cut prisms reflecting light than there are stars in the sky. Or so it seems.
The ring is size 6...probably an average woman's finger size. But the top itself is anything but average. It measures 1 inch across and 7/8 inch wide (knuckle to knuckle). It's 1/2 inch high from the side. The silver has a nice brushed matte finish. The ring is marked STERLING inside. The crystal stone is perfect...no chips. The ring weighs 19.8 grams. It's in excellent vintage condition. And the woman who wears a lollapalooza of a ring like this?...also extraordinarily impressive.
