Regular price $450.00

Tax included.

    Bold, Beautiful, Highly Detailed, Wide and Heavy 1970's Vintage Solid 14K Yellow Gold Band Set With Marquis Peridot and Garnet on a Rope Hearts and Flowers Black Enamel Background Ring.
      The ring is approximately a size 7 and 1/2, but easily sizeable by your jeweler within limits. The central face of the ring band measures just under approximately 7/16 of an inch, or about 11 millimeters high. The band narrows in back to just over about 3/16 of an inch, or about 5 millimeters, wide.
Though it's impossible to get a 100% accurate measurement of a set stone, the estimated size of each stone is approximately .25 carats, and the total combined weight of the two gems being about a half carat. (Included please find a US Quarter in the photographs, for the measurement-challenged and ruler-averse.) The ring is stamped, "14K", inside the band, unsigned. Discreetly acid tested as solid 14K gold, as well. The ring is also engraved inside, "Eddie Judy 12-25-72 Love". Weight is approximately 7.05 grams, which includes the stone weight, of course.

   This is a vintage piece, close to 50 years old, which has been worn and enjoyed. There will be the expected surface scratches and tiny dings in the gold from normal wear. A couple of tiny chips but no cracks, to the stones visible under a 10x loupe.The heavy ring remains round and true. There is a very discreet acid test mark on the edge of the band. Given a light hand-cleaning, but it has not been professionally polished.

   A very unique and outstanding vintage 14K gold fancy retro design peridot and garnet wide band ring. So much attention to detail in the applied rope hearts and flowers, with fantastic contrast from the black enameling. A very unusual, heavily and beautifully crafted piece.
