Art Deco 14kt Rock Quartz, Chrysoprase & Diamond Ring
A beautiful rock quartz crystal ring from the Art Deco period (ca1920)! Made of 14kt white gold, this wonderful piece features a rectangular shaped rock quartz crystal plaque, which holds single diamond set in the center. The clear rock quartz crystal has a smoothly polished front surface and a unique reverse carved starburst design on the back that shows through to the front, giving the piece wonderful depth. Inlaid into the front of the crystal and surrounding the diamond is a round chrysoprase disc which gives a splash of color and an interesting design. The diamond is set within a box setting and is riveted into the center of the plaque. The rock quartz crystal rests within an engraved bezel setting and the sides of the mounting display an absolutely exquisite filigree wirework design. The craftsmanship is exceptional, depicting an intricate lacey motif, with engraving traveling along the sides of the band. The inside of the shank is stamped "14K". It's an incredible ring with a lovely Art Deco look and it would make a very special addition to any jewelry collection!

Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or to the rock quartz crystal plaque or chrysoprase and the diamond stone is in intact.
