An oval brilliant-cut demantoid shines with stark green hues, held aloft in a multi-prong setting, in this stunning antique style ring. The base of the ring’s face is structured in subtle-waves, looking much like petals of a flower. The open-back setting allows light to maximally enter the stone and illuminate it, showcasing its vivid colors. The rose gold is in a bold 15k, with just the slightest hints of pinkish hues, with subtle detailing along the shoulders, transitioning into a sleek shank. External hallmarks on the shank further clarify the gold quality, as well as indicating an origin in Soviet Russia. In excellent condition, this beautiful treasure deserves to be the next addition to your collection!
