The agate stone set in this vintage 14 karat gold ring has mysterious depths. It reminds me of looking into a murky pond and discovering depths of color and pattern. The base color of the stone is a greenish gray; within the stone are swirls of orange and planes of tan. Bubbling up at he surface are three drops of white, plus some natural inclusions that add some texture. The stone is set in a thick bezel and surrounded by a geometrically patterned rim. Pretty whorls at the shoulders complete the design.
SIZE: ring size 8-3/4. The oval cabochon is 3/4" long x 5/8" wide x 3/16" high PLUS gold setting
WEIGHT: 8.9 grams
AGE: mid-20th century
CONDITION: very good vintage condition. There is a small section of the stone with a rough texture; I believe this is from the daylighting of natural inclusions, not from damage. Otherwise, there is just minor signs of wear, expected on a ring of this age.
