Welcome to my shop, The Strands of Time. I hope that you will enjoy browsing through the fine vintage and antique jewelry items in the shop and find something that is special. Please refer to “Terms of Sale” on each page.
This fantastic ring is a show stopper. It is made of solid 14K yellow gold and features an Akoya pearl surrounded by 6 natural rubies. The design is of a 6 petal flower. The petals are curled toward the center of the flower. The back of the ring is polished. The front of the petals are brushed gold and have a soft, satiny finish with a very slight hint of pink. Photos are showing the finish as darker than it actually is. There is no brown tone. I tried to get photos light enough but ended up with the rubies 'washed out."
The ring is 15/16 inch in diameter (just shy of 1 inch) and sits 3/8 inch off the finger. The size falls between 7 1/2 and a snug 7 3/4. The ring weighs 8.2 grams.
The pearl is 5mm in diameter and white with a hint of champagne. It does have a blemish near the bottom "V" between 2 of the prongs securing it. It is not noticeable unless you turn the ring on end and look down close to the mount.
The rubies are 2.75mm in diameter and are a transparent, medium red. Each weighs about 0.09 carat for a total weight of 0.45 carat.
The band is hallmarked "14K" and the ring is in very good condition.
I am always open to reasonable offers but, if items are reduced or on sale, they are already at the lowest prices.
