This is a great vintage find. It is a very detailed Intaglio of an anchor and ship in Citrine. The ring itself is beautifully embellished with leaves in alternate colors of gold. The ring is inscribed ZZ. It is acid tested 18K gold as I cannot make out the fineness mark.
I got this ring from over seas and it does not disappoint. It is a very large size 12, so it can be worn by a gentleman or a woman on her first finger. The stone is 1/2" by 3/8". The ring weighs 5.5 grams and is solid. Please note a small amount of loss of the edge of the shank at the back. But the ring is solid and that could be smoothed out if it offends.
I have recently been able to find several cameos and Intaglio in semi precious stones and am infatuated with this look.
