Vintage 1970's Meyer Treasure Chest 14K Ruby Diamond Ring.
This is a great looking ring and a wonderful memento from a long gone prominent jewelry store here in the Metro Detroit area. This ring is comprised of a 14K cigar band (wider in the front gently tapering or narrowing at the back).... with an oval faceted ruby prong set in the center....embellished in a simple border of small glittering diamonds. The ruby has a very pretty distinct and definite purple (amethyst color) hue depending on the lighting. Yellow gold ring with both yellow and white gold prongs in the mounting supporting the stones.
Ruby is an approximate .40 carat in size. Ten bright diamonds are .02 points each with a total diamond weight of approximately .20 carat.
Ring is stamped 14K Treasure Chest (Hallmark of the Meyer store) on the inside of band.
Weight is 6.6 grams.
Ring size is currently between a 6 and 6-1/4 and can be re-sized by a trusted jeweler.
Light surface wear observed on the ruby when viewed under magnification. Vintage condition is otherwise very good. Timeless!
