A delightful antique baby ring in 10k rose gold and set with a rectangular sardonyx.
The stone has a dark brown layer over white, it is the type use in carving dramatic stone cameos. The sides of the stone angle out from the top so that the white can be seen from the top.
The sardonyx is in a box setting, the side of the shank have engraved V's with a bit of texturing. It is wider on the sides and tapers in the back.
The ring is engraved 'Minnie' in script inside the shank under the setting.
Ring size 1.5, the setting measures 3/8" by .25", the sardonyx is 8mm by 4.5mm.
Overall very good antique condition though it does show signs of wear. The sardonyx is clean, no scratches or chips, the shank has been reinforced on the inside in the very back, it does not show on the outside. The engraved lines have softened with age and there is wear on the underside of the setting. All visible in the photos and being mentioned for accuracy.
Unmarked, the gold tested 10k with acid.
