Being a jeweler is a funny thing sometimes. When I first started in this career I thought that I only liked silver jewelry, but then I was beguiled by the subtle warmth and weighty velvet feel of old gold. I thought diamonds were too showy, but then I found old cuts, and their uniqueness and prismatic effect turned out to be much to my liking. Opals and Jade have been the late comers to my jewelry party, but of late I’ve been enjoying their broad range of colors and stunning natural beauty. This ring features that largest and most beautiful piece of jade that I’ve purchased yet, but when I put it on my finger I couldn’t help it, it spoke to my jewelry soul.
This wonderful ring was hand crafted in the 1950s and has a definitive Retro style. The grade A Jadeite Jade stone is a gorgeous vivid green and comes with a certification showing no enhancement to the stone; it measures 20.08x14x7.1 mm and is a rectangular shaped cabochon cut that weighs approximately 17.33 carats. The ring itself is made of 18 karat yellow gold and measures 25 mm north to south at the face, tapering to 3 mm at the back of the band. The stone is bezel set with a stabilizing bar at the back which is detailed with hand engraving. This size 7.5 ring is unisex in style and large in scale, it would look equally amazing on a man or a woman, it weighs 9.4 grams and is marked ’18k’ and ‘Y.P.C’ for the maker. Comes with stone certificate and full appraisal showing replacement value of $17,500.
