Reality of Illusion: Vintage Aquamarine Ring
The art and magic of jewelry design and crafting is shown in this circa 1930 ring of 14k yellow and white gold. An oval natural aquamarine of an estimated 3.5 carats displays a medium pale and distinct color of blue. The gem has a modified setting in which the yellow gold under gallery rise upwards and enfolds the stone with prong-like extensions north and south.
Triangle shaped plaques of 14k yellow gold with detail accent the east and west sides of the aquamarine. Creatively designed, the 14k white gold metal work surrounding the triangles have been formed in such a manner that it appears as though five (5) tiny diamonds embellish each side. In reality there are tiny scalloped depressions in the white gold which provide such an illusion. A slender yellow gold shank and ornate open work under gallery provide a delightful complexity to the ring.
