The domed face of this sparkler is decidedly Late Deco or Early Retro, dating from the 1930s or 1940s. It was found with no back at all, so I had my favorite jeweler run a curvy sterling band through the holes that once held something else - perhaps a brooch pin or a scarf slide mechanism. No one I've consulted has been able to determine precisely what this jewel was originally, but it's ready for a new life as a veryshowy cocktail or dinner ring - at a very appealing price.
All the pretend-pearls and pretend-diamonds are present, although some rhinestones have yellowed a bit with age (an effect I find pretty with the creamy pearls) and close inspection shows one is a replacement smaller than the rest. The stones are set in a white metal with some silver content, to judge from areas of tarnish. No doubt it would polish up to a very bright finish, if you prefer that look. At present it fits my index finger, which is about a US 7, but any jeweler could easily adjust the size up or down.
