Beautiful saturated green interspersed with splotches of white attract the eye in the "spinach jade" band nestled in this 14k yellow gold "bamboo" ring. I am partial to band rings and I love everything bamboo, especially in jewelry, and here the two come together in a great piece. What I find particularly beautiful about the ring at hand is the thickness of the bamboo rims that hold the jade in place. They are definitely not flimsy and their knots and brushed finish are easily readable when you have it on. Perfect to wear alone but also ideal for your ring stack the ring is a sz 9 US (not resizable) and just shy of 3/8" wide. It weighs 6.4 grams and is marked "14k". Difficult to date with accuracy but knowing the estate it came out of, I would suggest 1970s-80s. In very good vintage condition with fantastic color in the stone, a substantial gold setting, great and crisp detail in the "bamboo" design, with no damage and no repairs noted; please note that there are two very very tight, very difficult to spot with a naked eye hairlines in the jade; I believe they are superficial and related to the ring's aging rather than damage incurred at some earlier point; the jade is absolutely stable in its thick gold housing, there is no movement whatsoever and the existence of these stress marks does not affect the way the ring presents in any significant way but I have taken them into account in my pricing.
