Vintage Swedish 18kt Gold Synthetic Spinel Ring
A wonderful eye catching ring from the mid 20th Century, dated Gothenburg 1966. The ring is by the maker Trege Guldsmedsaktiebolaget and has a classically Swedish aesthetic with the gemstone set 'upside down' to show the facets to the top. The gem is a synthetic sapphire and boasts a beautiful deep green colour, not unlike green tourmaline. The look of the ring is large and eye catching and it has a cocktail feel about it. It is made from 18kt gold, which is marked on the inside of the shank, along with full Swedish hallmarks noting the date Q9 for 1966 and the makers mark GGG.
