An exceptional Arts & Crafts ring meticulously crafted in 14k gold and featuring a gorgeous carved lapis cabochon.
The design represents the period in the marvelous leaf and vine design of the mounting.
The handcrafted setting is substantial and beautifully designed, it is very complimentary to the carved stone.
The lapis has rich color perfectly balanced with gray and large flecks of iron pyrite.
The stone is carved into fruit hanging from leafy branches. Expertly carved with nice relief and great detail.
The gold work is fabulous, the sides and all around the set lapis has repousse leaves, tendrils and flowers flowing from the shank.
The inside of the ring is contoured for a comfortable fit and the shank is at an angle so the lapis sits flat on the finger.
Every aspect of the ring is spectacular!
Ring size 8, the carved lapis measures 1.25" by .75", the half round shank is 1/8" wide, total weight is 10.5 grams.
Marked 14k inside the shank.
Excellent condition, no damage and minimal wear.
An extraordinary and rare example of Arts & Crafts style c1920s.
