A wonderful antique Chinese sterling ring set with coral and jade.
The elaborately embellished dome is set with four coral cabochons and three jade cabs.
The bezel set stones are framed with two frames of fine twisted wire, flat circles are set between the cabs.
The shank has a series of raised circles, the shank tapers in the back for comfort.
Ring size 6, the top dome measures 7/8" in diameter by 3/8" in depth, the cabs are 5mm in diameter.
Unmarked, the silver tested sterling with acid.
Overall condition is very good, the ring is very solid though it does show its age. One of the coral cabs has a hairline in it- it is very fine and the coral is secure in the bezel and is no danger or distraction. The shank was reinforced with an inner band at some point for strength, it can only be seen from the top (photo 6).
The ring is quite unique and very impressive on the finger.
A rare and striking antique Chinese sterling ring set with coral and jade.
