Vintage 1940's - 1950's Fred Harvey Era Dragons Breath Glass Stones Sterling Ring and Earrings Set.
This is a great looking ring comprised of sterling silver....bezel set with an oval fiery glass stone in the center....in a twisted rope border and scalloped setting decorated with a native arrow design on the shoulders. These glass stones are very flashy, fiery and commonly referred to as Dragons Breath stones. This type of jewelry was manufactured for the tourist trade and sold in Fred Harvey establishments among others. Matching screw back style earrings.
Ring is signed STER on the inside of shank or band. Earrings are signed Sterling on both backs. The earrings retain the original hand markings on the back.
Ring is currently a size 5-3/4 and could be sized within reason by a trusted jeweler. Ring setting measures 7/8 inch high (vertically) by 9/16 wide (horizontally). Each earring is identical in size to the ring.
Weight is .41 ozt (troy ounces) correct measurement for sterling or 12.9 grams.
Set has not been polished. Could be polished up to a higher luster and markings removed, should you care to do so.
Appears that the earrings were rarely, if ever, worn. Ring shows very slight surface wear to the face of the stone when viewed under magnification. Vintage condition is otherwise excellent. Wonderful!
