Victorian 9kt Opal Sapphire Domed Ring, Sz. 7
Antique 9kt Opal & Sapphire Domed Ring, Sz. 7, Old Mine Cut. 8 pear/teardrop shaped opals that are appx. 5mm by 3.5mm. An appx. 2.7mm blue old mine cut sapphire on top, bezel set with 8 smaller blue sapphires bezel-set below the upper stone that are appx. 1.2mm. On the outer lower frame of the ring between the points of the opals are 8 more blue sapphires, old mine cut that are appx. 2.5mm. The band is appx. 3mm around the finger with a curved accent on top closest to the setting. The ring is not marked in any way. The metal has been tested multiple times and tests between 9kt and 10kt. Weight of the ring is appx. 5.33 gr. The undercarriage is a coiled design. From the base of the undercarriage to the top sapphire it is appx. 13.5mm. The top of the ring is round and appx. 19.5mm across. This has a bit fo a primitive design in that the bezels are not perfect. I found a very similar ring to this listed at $903.00 - same stone count just slightly different accents on the stone. Best guess this is a Victorian Era ring in good condition, no wear on the gold surfaces as you see in plated rings and does test as 9kt - 10kt solid gold, yellow gold. The construction also dates it to an earlier ring. (INV. W.82121.8X8 SS J LD 9/5/21).
We carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. We have our own store and are and have been known as stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. At one point we had a gift shop/rubber stamping store and switched over to vintage jewelry about six years ago on a full time basis, which also including taking and completing gemology classes as well as jewelry appraisal studies. We carry limited other vintage items and am trying to change our presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the migration is complete. You can find us on pinterest where all ebay items and other venues are categorized - mariasvinta0654

Thank you for stopping by, mariasvintage.
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
