The ring can be sized, and I will do it for the buyer. Please allow an extra 1/4 to 1/2 over your normal size to allow for the wide dimension of the band.
This pair of earrings in the shape of asymmetrical flowers with five petals is set in 18K white gold. They are 7/8" in diameter, almost one inch. There are 23 cts of invisibly set pink sapphires and .70 pts of diamonds in clusters of seven stones in the center. Each pink sapphire has been individually cut to fit the setting and perfectly matched in color, so that only the field of pink is visible.

These earrings in 18K white gold are 13/16" in diameter, just under one inch. The design is a swirl of black and gray diamonds, slightly domed, not flat.

There is an omega clip and post, and the post can be removed for someone without pierced ears. The earrings weigh 11.7 dwt or 18.2 g.

These earrings are 18K white gold, 1-1/8" in diameter, fairly large. They are pave set with 14 ct of pink sapphires with 12 mm South Seas white pearls in the center. The pink sapphires are perfectly and evenly matched in color, which takes additional time and requires many more stones in the setting. There are five petals to the flowers, and each petal is slightly different. The back is finished as beautifully as the top. There is an omega back, no post, but a post can easily be added to the flat platform on the back. I will be happy to do so for the buyer. The earrings date to about the 1970's, and the condition is excellent.
This wonderful little pin in 14K yellow gold is 1-7/8" wide at the bar, 1-1/2" high. There are no marks on the pin, but I have tested it and guarantee that it is 14K. The delightful design consists of a parrot with pave set oval and round sapphires in the body and pave set rose cut diamonds on the top and tail. The sapphires appear to be Ceylon in origin, but I have not had them analyzed. The parrot is gazing at a small white pearl, which could be a natural pearl. Because of the design and the rose cut diamonds, I would estimate that the pin is Victorian, around 1880-1890. The safety catch has been replaced with a modern safety, since the original Victorian C shaped safeties tended to break. The condition is excellent.

This 14K white gold ring consists of five narrow bands held together in the back and set with diamonds on the top. The bands are bead set with small diamonds, interspersed with 12 prong set diamonds of about 5-6 pts each, raised above the rest of the setting. There is slight side movement in the separate, individual bands, but they do not move up and down. Of course, when the ring is on the finger, the bands line up precisely. The band is about .5" wide on the top, about .3" wide at the back. The ring is a size 7, but when you buy a ring with a wide shank, you should add an extra quarter or half size to your normal size, so I would recommend this ring for someone who usually wears a size 6-1/2. Because of the construction at the back, it would be difficult to change the size of this ring. This style is known as a Hawaiian wedding band or harem ring and dates to about the 1950's. It is indistinctly marked ER....14K inside the shank. The condition is excellent.
