Antique and vintage coral jewelry has always been among my favourite to wear.
The colour and smoothness of the organic cabochons is second to none. This beautiful vintage ring contains a stunning large oval coral cab and sparkling diamonds.
Dating to the 1950's, the 17 mm by 14 mm gem is a wonderful salmon-pink colour and so smooth! The terrific oval gem is set in 14K yellow gold with a wide open gold band. The round-cut diamonds are super sparkly and set in white gold on either side of the coral--10 in total or approx. 0.50 cts.
The ring does not rise up very high, sitting quite "flat" on the finger. To give an idea of how it looks on the finger, ring head measures about 3/4" across. Weight is a good 5.6 grams. Size is 6&1/2-6&3/4.
I don't see any damage to any of the stones, just light wear due to age. The coral is guaranteed natural. Gold is not marked but tests as 14K gold.
