Elaborate Enamel and Jade Ring, Circa 1930
I can’t decide what’s more beautiful: the rich, natural color of this jade or the elaborately enameled gold mounting it sits in! In other words, this 1930s ring couldn’t get much better! The glossy green jade cabochon stands out with a simple rope embellished bezel and a stunning, ornate frame. The frame is designed with an intricate black enameled pattern of flared scrolls, curved borders and small geometric details. The underside is just as ornate with a series of wonderfully complex hand carved designs. The shoulders of the ring are a continuation of the contrasting black enamel displaying yet another intricate pattern. The measurement north to south across the frame is 22mm and east to west measures 17mm. The jade alone measures approximately 15mm by 11mm. Currently the ring is a size 7 and can be sized up or down upon request. The gold is 14k and is hallmarked as such on the inside of the shank. This ring has such presence, such style, one of those antique pieces you know must have been part of some great stories!
