Art Nouveau Sterling & Rock Quartz Pool of Light Ring
A fantastic rock quartz crystal ring from the Art Nouveau (ca1910) era! Traditionally known as "Pools of Light", the center of this gorgeous ring is a rock quartz crystal half sphere. The Pool of Light is bezel set and held within an enchanting sterling silver setting. Sculpted floral and leaf accents decorate the sides of the sterling frame and surround the clear crystal orb in the center, creating a very feminine design. The band of the ring is smooth and the shank is stamped "STERLING" inside. Pools of Light crystals have a striking appearance when worn, and this ring is no exception! It makes a beautiful statement and is the perfect piece to wear everyday. Both feminine and artistic, it would make a unique addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 6.75 but could be easily re-sized. The rock quartz crystal "Pool of Light" has a diameter of approximately 15mm. When worn, it rests about 1/2" above the finger.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling setting or chips to the Pool of Light, which is intact.
