Vintage Large 14kt Enamel & Moonstone Modernist Ring
A unique Modernist moonstone and enamel ring from the 1960’s! This striking piece is made of vibrant 14kt yellow gold and adorns a very unusual and fabulous design. The face of the ring most closely resembles a curved swirl and has a convex face. The surface of the swirl has a textured, carved design which can be seen through the brilliant red enameling. Prong-set within the ring are two large moonstones. The shoulders of this large ring are detailed with bolted wirework which adds wonderful detail. The shank is stamped “14K” along with the phrase “VIRTUS JUNXIT MORS NON SEPARABIT”, which translates to “Whom virtue unites, death will not separate”. It's a simply marvelous piece and a must have for the Modernist ring collector!
Measurements: The face of the ring measures slightly less than 1 1/2" at its tallest point, 1 1/8” at its widest point, and 1/2" at its deepest point. The smaller of the two moonstones has a diameter of about 1/2", while the larger has a diameter of about 5/8”. The ring has a finger size 7.5 but could be resized if desired.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold or enameling and both moonstones are intact.
