Gorgeous Retro Era vintage solitaire ring set with gold threaded rutilated quartz. The stone is gem quality, very clear, and has a slight citrus color. The gold threads are beautifully arranged and easy to see.
The Mid Century setting holds the stone high on the hand. Each prong is at the top of a big swoop, reflecting modernist architectural elements of its time. It is entirely made by hand or fabricated. It was not cast in large numbers and might even be custom made. It is made of solid 14k gold and has a rose-y cast.
The stone is approximately 10mm in diameter with an estimated weight of 6cts. It is not original to the setting. It was personally hand selected from the cutter in Brazil.
The ring size is between 7.75 and 8 US. It has been custom sized and/or is custom made. There are no quality or karat marks, it is solid 14k gold, carefully tested.
In very good condition, ready to wear. All prongs were reinforced prior to stone setting.
