Wow! Fantastic, huge vintage ring! This is a stunning, exotic, old nomadic Middle Eastern ring from the Swat Valley of Pakistan. This old silver ring is quite a statement piece. It is nice and wide on the front for your finger and forms a scalloped diamond shape. The jewels are in ruby red and green for contrast. They are set with bezels. The old silver has a softly aged patina to it. This has a textured, dotted pattern on sides. Great ethnic piece! This is a unisex ring and can be worn by a man or a woman
Old Silver - The Afghan / Pakistan old silver pieces that I carry are between 80 - 95% silver. These are higher quality pieces and their aged silver patina color is fabulous. This is one of several old nomadic silver pieces that I have listed, so please check those out also! These are at least 50 years old.

Please keep in mind that most Nomadic Tribal / Afghan / Pakistan / Kuchi and Turkoman / Turkmen / Turkomen items are old and used items with a distinct aged patina. They are a nomadic Afghan people who have created amazing jewelry for centuries. Their colorful jewelry combines new, old, metal, beads, coins, stones and fabric. Many pieces are worn due to being used from every day wear, tribal celebrations, belly dance and wedding uses. They are made with a coin-base metal alloy.
Please examine enlarged photos for details. This is much more beautiful in real life! I am not an expert on vintage jewelry, but I do buy and sell what I love! Since these items are vintage, they may have a wonderful aged patina and are not meant or expected to look brand new. I treasure their imperfections as part of their charm and history.
