Art Nouveau Sterling Cabochon Lapis Ring w/Floral Motif
An unusual lapis ring from the Art Nouveau (ca1910) era! This striking piece is made of sterling silver ring and has a gorgeous cabochon lapis stone bezel set in its center. The lapis stone is a beautiful royal blue color with sporadic white and grey specs throughout. The sterling mounting, which sits high about the finger, depicts a feminine floral motif which carries onto each shoulder of the lapis stone. This fabulous ring would make a beautiful addition to any collection!
Measurements: The lapis stone measures 6/8” tall and slightly more than 3/8” wide. The entire ring sits slightly less than 3/8" above the finger. The ring has a finger size of 6.75, but could easily be resized.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver mounting or to the lapis stone.
