It is surrounded with sparkling prong set clear paste stones and the iris crystal is set in an old fashioned pie crust or crown setting.The flanks of the ring are decorated with tiny little paste leaves. It has a foil backing without any flaking or damage that enhances to produce more iridescent dazzle. Unmarked but origin is most likely Germany. The band is gold filled and the ring is a size 5 1/2" - 6".
