Chased Sterling Pearl & Green Stone Ring
This ring just hit me when I first saw it. First I thought it was perhaps Celtic but the more I look at it I'm not sure.
There are no makers marks, quite striking and older perhaps than it first appears. The band is heavy. The domed background is chased with plume like patterns and arches of silver that go over the top. It has a gold cast to this background as if a gold wash but it could just be the patina. I've left it as found. Then it's set with green cabochons of some sort of stone, not turquoise of any kind that I can tell. The center is a smokey gray irregular surface genuine pearl. Since it's bezel set it's hard to tell if it's whole or just a half. Has very nice color and rainbow sheen. The outside edge has twisted silver rope. In a size 10, this ring is suitable for a man or a woman. As shown it fits my middle finger and looks great there because this is a showy big ring that sits high above the finger. It's 7/8 in diameter and weighs 10.9 grams. Very different in it's combination of textures and stones and comfortable on the finger. Gorgeous ethnic ring that everyone is sure to notice.
