This is a simply beautiful 22k solid gold ring. The piece is based on Balinese designs with a lot of intricate granulation around the bezel and graduated gold balls around the band. This is a substantial piece with just short of 12 grams of 22k gold.
The emerald in this piece is from Zambia (Africa) and has a deep forest green color. It is fairly clean as emeralds go but does have some veils beneath the surface. It is completely natural (un-oiled) which is rare considering it is estimated that more than 95% of emeralds are treated.
The ring at its widest point is approx. 3/8” wide (at the front – top to bottom) and the band is approx. 3/16” at the back.
