Retro 14k/Platinum Sapphire + Diamond Adjustable Buckle Ring
An absolutely fabulous gemstone buckle ring from the Retro (ca1940) era! Crafted in 14kt yellow gold with platinum accents, this wide ring wraps around the finger, fastening with a stunning 3-dimensional "buckle" at the center. The band is comprised of smoothly polished mesh-like links that connect together to form a flexible "strap," wrapping comfortably around the finger. The chevron-shaped end of the strap as well as the "prong" are lined with vibrant calibrated sapphires while the loop of the buckle is adorned with sparkling bead set diamonds that rest in a lovely platinum setting. The pointed tongue of the adjustable ring slides within the loop of the buckle, where 7 hidden notches on the underside allow the single gold tooth to be secured. The gorgeous buckle acts as a safety clasp, and is pushed down over the strap to securely fasten it into place. The combination of the smoothly polished yellow gold links next to the diamonds and sapphires makes for a fabulous statement piece when worn. An incredible piece with a strong Retro look, it would make a spectacular addition to any collection!
Measurement: The ring features 7 openings to adjust the finger size from an approximate 8.75 at the largest to a 2.5 at the smallest. The band measures a little more than 1/4" wide, and is 1/16" thick. The buckle measures about 1/2 wide, and rests about 1/8" above the finger when worn.
Condition: The overall condition of this ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold and platinum setting. All of the diamonds and sapphires are intact and securely set. The clasp is secure and in good working condition.
