Vintage 1980's 14 Kt. Yellow Gold Ladies Ring with 12 accent diamonds set in Figure 8 design 8.2 Grams. Size 7-3/4 - 8.
This very unusual ring with its Figure 8 design was purchased by me during the mid 1980's from the same New York jeweler where many of my fine gold and gemstone jewelry items came from. It was not a ring I inherited or received as a gift so I know the history of the ring. It was originally marked inside along the bottom 14K but after having it resized to fit my finger the 14K mark is no longer visible.
The beauty of this ring is the highly polished smooth gold surface and the twists and turns creating the figure 8. Because of the raised intricate design the profile of the ring measures 9mm high. There are six diamonds on opposite sides where the elongated curves intertwine adding sparkle to the curved surface. The width of the shank is approximately 4mm wide and one ribbon of gold continues wrapping around to create the swirling figure 8. I have never seen anything like this before. The overall measurement of the ring north - south is 1" long. The elongated design is very flattering on your finger. The ring measures between 7-3/4 to 8.
This is a perfect ring to wear day or night, the diamonds do not make it a super dressy cocktail ring, but depending on what you wear, it fits any occasion.
