A beautiful gemstone 'DEAREST' ring from the late 20th century, c1980! The ring is made of 9ct yellow and white gold - a white gold top where the gemstones are set and a yellow gold shank. This charming ring features a single row of colorful natural gemstones whose first letters spell out the word "DEAREST", alluding a romantic secret message to the wearer! The stones include a Diamond, Emerald, Amethyst, Ruby, a second Emerald, a Sapphire, and a Topaz, all bead set in a single row. All the gemstones are a faceted round-cut and rest in a 'beaded' white gold channel. The undercarriage of the ring has a gorgeous cut-out design... adding further charm to the ring! A cut-out scroll like design decorates each shoulder and forms into a smooth rounded shank.
Stamped inside the shank are several English hallmarks, including a London lion, a crown, "375," and the date letter "f" which dates the ring to the year 1980.
A wonderful sentimental ring which would make a perfect gift for someone special, and an ideal everyday ring ... stacked with others or worn alone!
