Killer Schiller : Vintage Moonstone Ring in 9k Yellow Gold

AU$500.00

A delightful domed oval cabochon in a stylish and simple 9ct yellow gold setting. Subtly elegant and entirely enchanting. The classical styling doesn’t provide any clues as to the age of this piece, the only hallmark is a simple 9k to the inside of the band, which suggests it was made before 1970 and probably in Italy.

Manufacture:
The oval cabochon has the mesmerising blue schiller moonstones of Ceylonese origin are famous for. It is eye clean with delicious lustre and deeply luminous. Set in a simple yellow gold bezel with looped shoulders, tapering to a plan square profile band. Stamped 9k to the inside of the band, suggesting Italian origin.

The cabochon is 11.6mm long x 6mm wide. The ring sits 4.75mm high on the finger.
The ring weighs 1.5 grams

Size S or 9.25
fully resizable

Condition:
In lovely vintage condition with minimal wear to the stone or setting. The moonstone does show slight abrasions under magnification which are not visible to the naked eye. There is some slight thinning to the back of the band, but nothing that should be of concern and is mentioned here for transparency: in other words ‘signs of wear commensurate with age’.
Ready for immediate and everyday wear.
