This massive British hallmarked 9ct gold cocktail ring ring boasts a huge rectangular step cut Spinel of at least 28 carats!
Retro styling on a grand scale the ring is crafted in thick buttery 9ct yellow gold. The Spinel is a gorgeous pale lemon yellow colour with sophisticated blue/grey undertones. This impressive gemstone is emerald cut in a fat rectangle that completely covers the finger and reaches from knuckle to knuckle. The stone is tightly hugged in 4 substantial curved claws with thick scroll elements decorating the under gallery and accenting the shoulders.
The brilliant sparkling Spinel has been verified using a Presidium Gemstone Tester, it is crystal clear with unique tiny feathery inclusions inside. The ring band is even stamped "Real Stone" just in case you were under any illusions that the gemstone is genuine!
A full set of 1966 London Hallmarks authenticates this magnificent mid-century cocktail ring of fabulous proportions. A gorgeous vintage ring in August's birthstone, the name Spinel comes from the ancient Greek word for "spark" and we can quite see why with this ring!
