A fabulous 1930s French art deco statement ring showcasing a glowing orangey red carnelian stone cut into a slender oval cabochon with sparkling side facets. The stone is a beauty with an oblique stripe of semi-translucent banding adding to the drama.
The ring is rendered in sterling silver and set with steely grey marcasite accent stones and it has a curved and tiered profile. A fabulous piece that just screams Art Deco and lovely quality too.
