Vintage Silver Ruby Ring, Large Gemstone, with White Topaz, Sterling Silver, 1940s
An incredible statement ring that is just awesome! A natural ruby cabochon with a weight of 6.3 carats is surrounded by a halo of white topaz stones. The setting has a millegrain border and then Art Deco ridging in a vermeil finish. The ring is set way above the finger on a basket of open metalwork gold wash on sterling silver. The band of the ring is in sterling silver and has a tiny embellishment at the shanks with dainty open metalwork. It is stamped 925 with a designer mark on the inner shank.
The ruby is fully included with slight marbling across the surface. So it has a slightly opaque character which suits the design of the ring very well The white topaz stones are distinct and sparkling. They weigh over 1 carat in total.
A great Art Deco/Mid Century transitional ring combining many elements of both periods.
