An awesome Russian ring beautifully made in 14k rose gold and set with a genuine Baltic amber* cabochon.
The large oval amber is set in an open back bezel with two teardrop wire prongs.
The amber has a beautiful glowing clear orange honey color with interesting flecks of 'trappings' floating through portions of the amber. The open back allows the light to pass through and illuminate the cabochon.
The shank meets the top with a triangle of gold embellished with a raised geometric designs that makes a very smooth transition to the flat band.
Ring size 8.25, the amber measures 1" by 5/8", the gold triangles are 11/16" at the sides, the shank is 1/8", the setting sits 3/8" off the finger.
Marked on the outside of the shank as is customary for Russian rings is 583 for 14k, a star with the hammer and sickle within it, a left facing head, the mark is blurry but visible. There are other marks for city and date, I was not able to research them further. The ring dates from 1950-60s.
Total weight is 7.2 grams.
Very well made and in excellent condition, no damage and minimal wear.
A unique and beautiful Russian ring in rose gold and vibrant amber.

Amber, especially the inhalation of amber incense or vapors, has a long history of medicinal use. In ancient times, amber was carried by travelers for protection. It also is symbol of renewal in marriage & continued fidelity. In some cultures, it even evokes eternal life & youth. In dreams, amber signifies a voyage. It also represents the tenth wedding anniversary.
