Art Deco 14kt Mixed Metals Star Cut Aquamarine Filigree Ring 3.00ct
A stunning aquamarine ring from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! This lovely mixed metals piece is crafted in 14kt yellow and white gold, and adorns an aquamarine stone at its center, weighing approximately 3.00ct. The stone is beautifully faceted into a unique hexagonal shape known as a "Star Cut," with a radiant 6-point star visible in the center. A white gold bezel frames the aquamarine, complete with an delicate Roman Key pattern that provides a soft, finishing touch. The gold mounting boasts a lacy filigree design with fine cutouts and hand-engraved accents, extending to a smooth band in the back. Inside the shank is an applied patina, which reveals an ombre effect comprised of iridescent green, blue, and purple colors that travel along the inside of the setting. In person, the sky blue aquamarine is positively breathtaking as its star-shaped facets catch the light. This unusual piece would look equally gorgeous worn day or night!
Measurements: The ring is a finger size 6, but could easily be resized. The aquamarine centerpiece measures approximately 1/2" in diameter, and rests about 3/16" above the finger when worn. The tapered gold 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 mixed metals setting. The aquamarine is intact and securely set. The surface of the facets are slightly abraded due to wear, however they can only be seen under a jeweler's loop, and are not noticeable when worn.
