Carnelian is a variety of the gemstone chalcedony or the name most of us know, quartz. Its coloration can be red, orange or amber as well as some combination of these.
This ring shows an example of the red-orange color. Art Deco in style and date, the 14k white gold mounting is a terrific contrast for the 12 x 9 mm francy cabochon.
The setting is almost rectangular in overall shape with lacy filigree work and delicate curves incorporated. Tiny flower blossoms embellish open work of the filigree, sides and shank.
