Vintage Designer 75ct+ Citrine and Gold Cocktail Ring, c. 1960 in 18k Gold

A giant, flashing, golden citrine is the sunshine of this fabulous flower garden; so big and juicy that one can almost smell the daisies! An homage to peace, love, and happiness, this pretty and haute couture hippie ring brings bright flower power on even the rainiest of days. With a ring like this, you could truly bring your own sunlight wherever you happen to venture! 

The royal sized rectangular faceted golden citrine stone is set inside 23 various sized gold daisies, some of which are actually attached to the ring in an en-tremblant fashion, shake and twist with every move of your lovely hand. It was most likely crafted in the 1960s, possibly in France, which is where I purchased it. It is marked with an as yet unidentified makers mark (I’d be delighted to hear if anyone recognizes it!), but it’s otherwise unmarked. Although I don’t yet know the designer, this is most certainly a special designer piece, it is quite spectacular. The mesmerizing citrine is a fabulous deep golden color kissed with orange, truly the color of sunlight at dusk, it measures 29.5 mm north to south and 24.5 mm wide by 16 mm deep, and totals about 76.61carats. The ring narrows to 5 mm wide at the back of the band. It's been acid tested to ensure 18 karat gold purity. This piece is a size 8.5 and weighs 42.2 grams, I think it could be re-sized pretty easily, care should be taken to preserve the mark. 

This ring makes me think of that song... 'Sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows....' when this ring is near, the rain truly does disappear!
