RESERVED Antique 14kt Gold Smokey Quartz Ring
This statement ring is from the early half of the 20th Century and is made from 14kt rose gold. It has a pretty smokey quartz stone that has been claw set as a large solitaire. The quartz has a beautiful clear brown appearance with flashes of a soft orange in the facets - a colour that compliments the rose gold perfectly. There is an inclusion in the stone. This can be seen in the photos, but is not noticeable from all angles and does not detract from the beauty of this natural stone.
The ring has a ridged wide shank that really finishes this statement piece off. There is evidence that the stone setting, or gallery, is not original to the shank, but if this has been altered at some point, it is very much in keeping with the design. It is a perfect match and is noted only for accuracy.
