Introducing an exquisite 1920s ring adorned with shimmering marcasites and a radiant orange cabochon, all elegantly set in 835 silver. Marcasite, known as faceted iron pyrite, was fondly called “brilliants” during the Jazz era owing to its captivating sparkle under candlelight. This alluring Art Deco ring is an impeccable addition to enhance your collection of timeless treasures.
The ring is in very good to good antique condition with minimal signs of wear. There are no missing and only one chipped marcasite, and the plastic cabochon is intact and firmly secure. The cabochon has some signs of abrasion, which creates a matte appearance in a small section. The silver’s surface has light signs of wear from age but nothing noticeable. The inside of the shank is stamped 835 (83.5% silver, a mark used in Germany, Netherlands, and Austria.) There are spots of heavy patina in the shank that can be polished upon request.
The ring is a size 5.75 and can be sized. The ring measures 7/8″ tall by 6/8″ wide and weighs 4.51 grams. The box is for display only.
