Luminous jadeite in the colour known as “moss in snow” – a delicate mix of white and apple green jade – is the focus of this large statement ring. Holding the large cabochon is a sinuous ring in rosy 15ct gold, with an ornate and delicate looking undercarriage and wonderfully detailed shoulders. The ring has excellent finger coverage and presence on the hand.
The jadeite measures 21mm x 14.5mm x 4mm, measured in the setting. It is in wonderful condition with high lustre and no chips, scratches or other faults to note. The gold ring shows hints of a well worn hallmark, now illegible. The ring has been XRF tested to verify the gold content as 15ct gold. At one point there was an 18ct gold wash over the top, the remains of which can be seen on the underside of the ring.
The band is 2.8mm wide and 0.6mm thick. The ring sits 6.2mm high on the finger.
