KAUNIS KORU Vintage Finnish Huge 14kt Rutilated Quartz Ring
This impressive statement ring is a vintage piece (ca1970) by Finnish designer Kaunis Koru! Crafted in 14kt gold, the ring is quite substantial in size and appearance, framing a unique rutilated quartz cabochon at the center. The rutilated quartz is clear, with natural needle-like inclusions of black rutile that almost appear to "float," as though suspended inside. A wide gold bezel surrounds the quartz, with an open-back setting that allows light to pass through the center. Completing the design is a smooth gold band with several Finnish hallmarks stamped inside the shank. A fun and funky vintage piece, it has a bold look that would make a striking addition to any fashionista's collection!
Measurements: The ring has a large finger size 9.5, but could be easily re-sized. The rutilated quartz cabochons measures 1" long, 3/4" wide, and rests about 3/4" above the finger when worn. The gold band measures 6mm wide at the back.
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 rutilated quartz cabochon, which is securely set.
