Estate Large Palladium Black Tourmalinated Quartz Ring
An incredible and unique Estate tourmalinated quartz ring! This bold piece is crafted in palladium and adorns a large Emerald Cut tourmalinated quartz stone at the center. The transparent stone rests in a 4-prong setting, and features needle-like inclusions of black tourmaline that almost appear to "float," as though suspended inside. The open-back quartz has a slight shimmering quality that is reflected beautifully in the light with every turn, and the combination of the rich, black lines against the smoothly polished palladium background is simply stunning. Bold airline cutouts grace the mounting and below each shoulder, and a smoothly polished band graduates towards the back where stamped inside of the shank is a "RUTH.PALL" palladium purity mark besides a maker's mark. This statement ring creates a fabulous and bold look when worn, and would make a striking addition to any fashionista's collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size scant 5.25 but can be resized. The centerpiece measures slightly more than 3/4" tall, and a little more than 1/2" wide, and rests about 3/8" above the finger when worn. The graduated 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 palladium setting. The tourmalinated quartz stone is intact and securely set.
