Art Deco 18kt Hand Carved Natural Jadeite Floral Ring
A stunning jadeite ring from the Art Deco (ca1920s) era! This beautiful piece is crafted in vibrant 18kt yellow gold and features an artistic oval-shaped jadeite plaque resting in the center of a decorative floral mounting. The natural, untreated stone displays a wonderful vivid green color marbled with a milky, pale green hue throughout. The surface of the jadeite is intricately hand-carved with soft cutout shapes that depict a lovely floral motif paired with what appears to be two open-winged birds. Completing the design is an exceptional bezel frame decorated with a bold wheat motif, and each shoulder is graced with an elegant floral adornment. A smoothly polished double stacked band wraps around the back, finishing the wonderful design. A very special Art Deco era piece, it has an impressive appearance when worn and would make a striking addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 6.5 but could be resized if desired. The oval jadeite plaque measures approximately 1" tall, about 3/4" wide, and rests about 1/8" above the finger when worn. The band measures 2mm wide at the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold setting or to the carved jadeite plaque, which is intact and securely set.
