A striking vintage tourmaline cocktail ring from the 1970's! This eye catching piece is made of 18ct yellow gold and features a beautiful green tourmaline gemstone. The natural tourmaline exhibits a lime green colour with yellow-green flashes and a blue tinge near the ends of the stone, a very attractive stone, and a gorgeous contrast to the yellow gold setting! The good-sized elongated emerald-cut tourmaline measures 16.41mm long x 10.70mm wide, estimated weight of the stone is 10.70 carats. A four claw setting displays the tourmaline beautifully, allowing light to travel through the stone for maximum scintillation. Accented to either side of the stone is upswept and textured bow like motifs, adding a touch of flair to the ring! A tapered concave shank measuring 2mm to 3.50mm wide at base makes up the rest of the ring. The ring is stamped "750" denoting 18k gold and there is also another stamp albeit difficult to decipher, perhaps the makers mark.
An independent NCJV registered valuer/ FGAA gemmologist has assessed the ring and stone with professional gemmological equipment. Upon sale of the ring a photographic appraisal certificate will accompany the ring, carried out independently by a NCJV registered valuer/ FGAA gemmologist.
There is a daylight video of the ring, available upon request.
A wonderful vintage ring that would give a bold statement worn alone or with other rings!
