Stunning 18k Gold Diamond & Malachite Ring
Presented is a fabulous 18 karat gold, diamond and malachite ring. This ring
dates to around the 1960s-1970s and is likely European in make, possibly
Italian. The ring is set with 22 single cut diamonds in an oval formation, about
1 point each in size. These are vibrant, dazzling stones, of at least SI-1
clarity and H color, set in white gold so they really sparkle. The shoulders and
sides of the setting are set with pieces of rich green malachite, contrasting
beautifully with the deep yellow of the 18 karat gold. The ring is very well
made and high quality, with great attention to detail. The white gold setting of
the diamonds is securely mounted to the ring itself with tiny threaded gold
screws, to avoid overheating the malachite with solder, very solid and attentive
construction. The gold setting itself is sleek and heavy, with a very nice feel
on the hand.
The ring is in great condition. The diamonds and malachite pieces are
securely set. There are no breaks and no repairs.
The band is stamped and guaranteed 18k.
The ring is a size 8 3/4.
The ring weighs 11.9 grams.
