Retro Large Chinese Sterling Amber & Amethyst Cluster Ring
A fabulous and unusual amber and amethyst cluster ring from the Retro (ca1940s) era! The piece, which is of Chinese origin, is crafted in sterling silver and comprised of a large central amber stone surrounded by 8 smaller amethyst stones, forming an impressive cluster. The large amber cabochon stone is oval in shape and has a smoothly polished surface while the amethysts are beautifully faceted. All of the stones are bezel set and surrounded by exquisitely ornate bead and wirework which reflect its Chinese origin beautifully. Wirework flowers rest on the shoulders of the mounting and the design is completed with a simple smooth sterling band. The color of the golden amber mixed with the vibrant amethysts and sterling silver is absolutely wonderful and the ring makes a bold statement when worn. The shank is stamped "CHINA". This wonderful piece is perfect for the amber or amethyst lover, and would make a fashionable addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 8, but could be easily be resized. The cluster measures approximately 1 1/4" tall, is 1" wide, and has a depth of 1/2".
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting or to any of the stones, all of which are intact.
