This is a beautiful fiery red-orange citrine set in solid 18k gold. The piece is based on Balinese designs with intricate granulation around the bezel and some extra detail on the four ordinal points of the setting.
The gemstone is from Chiapas, Mexico and is completely natural. I was able to purchase a small amount of this material from a fellow by the name of Trinidad (Triny to those who knew him) at a gem show several years ago. The color of the crystals ranges from bright yellows all the way up the color scale to deep red-orange. This piece as I noted above, is deep red-orange and is clean and free of flaws and inclusions.
The ring at its widest point is approx. 3/4” wide (at the front – top to bottom) and the band is approx. 1/8” at the back.
