A wonderful heavy 18K yellow gold ring by David Webb. The domed ring is worked in textured gold accented with parallel rows of sculptural ropework. Each of the ropework bands is interrupted by a collet-set cabochon emerald, sapphire or ruby. The stones are of superb quality, with intense color and good clarity. Despite its considerable weight, the ring is easy to wear because of the extra width of the shank. This type of chunky, colorful design is precisely why Webb is considered one of the world's foremost jewelry designers of the late 20th century. The interior of the shank is marked "Webb 18K".
