This is such a unique ring. The stone is a cabochon Maw Sit Sit which is of the up most quality in color, a saturated green with dark green to black veining . It has an amazing dark green to black veining running throughout. I honestly have yet to see a brighter stone such as this one. This fit so well with the 22K-24K solid gold natural nuggets running along the entire outer boarder. . The Maw Sit Sit is bezel set in a slight rose gold. The outside of the boarder is natural gold nuggets which are all strategically set to frame this stone so elegantly. The band and setting are 14K which is hallmarked and tested. The nuggets are 22K-24K tested. It is an amazing statement which is truly one of a kind.

At first, I was sure this was Verisite, but after further investigation and help from my fellow colleagues it came to be set to my attention that this is Maw Sit Sit. You truly can not find a stone today very easily of this color and quality. We believe that this stone was set into a victorian 14K & 22-24K nugget setting. Dating the stone being set to the 1970's or there about where as the setting is most likely 1900's.

This is a but of research found in regards to this incredible stone: "Maw-sit-sit is a green gemstone that was named "maw-sit-sit" after the village where it was found in Northern Burma. Maw-sit-sit was discovered in 1963 by a Swiss gemologist called Dr Edward Gubelin. Since it is made of kosmochlor, chromian jadeite, chromian eckermannite, chromian albite, and other materials, maw-sit-sit is considered to be a rock, rather than a mineral. It is sometimes referred to as a variety of jadeite, but strictly speaking, maw-sit-sit is not jadeite, though it contains jadeite and is mined in the same area as imperial jadeite. Jadeite is a mineral, whereas maw-sit-sit is a rock. The dominant mineral of maw-sit-sit is kosmochlor and this sets it apart from jadeite, which is sodium aluminum silicate. Therefore, maw-sit-sit is best considered to be related to jadeite. The kosmochlor component of maw-sit-sit is what gives it a beautiful emerald-green color with blackish-green patches."
