Perfect for dazzling someone special, here's a stunning vintage ring paved with 6 emeralds and 10 diamonds. The jeweled area is quite large -- almost .75 inch tall and .5 inch wide -- and its ribbons of gems form a sleek and sophisticated geometric banner that rises importantly above the hand. All 16 gems are brilliantly faceted and about 3mm round. The emeralds are a deep true green, very well-matched for color and size.
Because the face is of white gold, while the shank is of yellow gold, this is a ring that can be worn beautifully with either metal.
Hallmarked 14k, the ring is in such fabulous condition that it can't have been worn much. It reached us from a New Mexico estate collection and appears to date from the 1970s. Glamorous cocktail rings enjoyed great popularity then, as they also did in the 1950s, but the earlier designs tend to have wider bands and generally lack grace. Notice the pretty, fluid lines of the dual band here, which merges into a single shank at the back to facilitate resizing. It's currently about a US size 5.25-5.75. (We state sizes as a range, because results from different types of measuring equipment can vary up to half a size, as our fingers also do with the time of day and temperature.)
