A fabulous classic 1930s Art Deco ring set with a rectangular cut carnelian gemstone in a glowing orange red. Rendered in 925 sterling silver and set with steely grey marcasite stones the oval shaped face is almost knuckle length and features a scalloped design around the edge and a fluted profile.
The carnelian is set into a bezel with a saw tooth edge and a slender square band completes the ring. Lovely attention to detail and excellent quality, likely a good maker, Theodor Fahrner springs to mind. It is unusual to find these antique rings in a larger finger size, a beautiful all original jazz age era statement ring in a desirable geometric design.
