This is a beautiful 18k solid gold ring with a top quality rubellite (red) tourmaline. The piece is based on Balinese designs with a lot of intricate granulation around the bezel and fine twisted wire around the band.
The gemstone is from Brazil and it has a deep red color that is referred to as Rubellite in the gem business. It is clean and bright and has only minor imperfections or inclusions.
The ring at its widest point is approx. 9/16” wide (at the front – top to bottom) and the band is approx. 1/8” at the back. See last photo with coin for size/scale comparison.
