SOLD Vintage 18k Multi Gem Sputnik Cocktail Ring
Wonderful vintage cocktail ring from the late 20th Century, circa 1980s, with a multitude of colorful gems set into 18k gold. This ring is called a sputnik ring due to the fact that it looks like the Russian satellite, and it makes quite an impression on the hand. The gems are a combination of zircons, amethysts, citrines and tourmalines (both green and pink) and are likely to have been mined in Sri Lanka, the 'Island of Jewels'. There is a wonderful spectrum of colors and this is a fun piece to add to any jewelry collection.
The head of the ring measures 0.7" in diameter and it would sit approximately 0.5" high from the finger.
