I stood on the ballroom floor, with champagne in one hand and this ring on the other. The lights were low and the crowd was serene inside a bubble of music and fine wine. She strolled in my direction, feigning to walk by.
Victoria, your dress is de rigueur this evening.
It’s the chalcedony, I’m sure.
Oh, but your gown, it’s magnificent.
Take my word for it, darling, it’s always all about the jewels.
I waved her goodbye and the stone caught the light from the chandeliers and lit a glowing green stripe across my cheeks, just for a second.
This beautiful silver chalcedony ring was handcrafted around 1900. It’s a German-made ring from the Jugendstil movement, (think Art Nouveau, but in another language). This oval antique stunner features a mint chalcedony that measures 11.5 x 6.5 x 3.3 mm and is cabochon cut. It’s surrounded by silver roses on a size 9.75 US band. The ring face measures 23.4 x 15 x 7.3 mm off the finger and the band width is 2.2 mm at the back. It bears the silver fineness mark, “935”.
From boardrooms to ballrooms, this ring transitions from day to night without a hint of difficulty. It’s one of those refreshing pieces that’s antique but modern and now it has nothing left to prove!
