A very unique and beautiful moonstone ring from the Art Nouveau (ca1900) era! Simply stunning, this artistic ring is made of 14kt yellow gold and holds a single cabochon moonstone within an unusual figural design. The moonstone is oval in shape and has a lovely iridescent pale blue color. Holding the stone in place is a sculptural setting that depicts a flower at one shoulder and a figure of a woman on the other. Leaves and flower petals branch around the base and at the side of the moonstone. The woman has an elongated figure that extends down the shoulder of the band appearing to rest against the stone, with one arm reaching around it to grasp the leaves of the flower. The flower bud itself is accented with a single, delicate old Mine Cut diamond set in the center. Inside the ring are the markings "14KP" and what appears to be a signature or hallmark. This exquisite and unusual piece is a wonderful example of the Art Nouveau era and would make a very special addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 6.75 but could be resized. When worn, the ring rests approximately 1/4" above the finger. The mounting of the ring measures approximately 5/8" long and 3/8" wide.
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 moonstone, which is intact.
