Vintage 14kt Citrine Ring, 4.56tcw, Signed Kevin, Sz. 6, 1970's, 8.06 gr.
Vintage 14kt Citrine Ring, signed Kevin. Size 6. Hefty 8.06 grams. This could be a tourmaline stone, more rare golden color. I have to pull out all my gemology equipment to test to be certain. However, I'd price the ring the same whether it is either stone. The stone is approximately 12.5mm by 11.4mm by 5.1mm deep as best as I can measure in the setting. I believe Kevin is a jeweler in the Los Angeles area with their first store opening in the mid-70's in Beverly Hills. I have asked them for confirmation that the maker's mark is their mark and to get a better date of when it was made. They are a family owned business that prides themselves in excellent quality and craftsmanship and this ring is that. The stone is set in a brushed curved collar on each side of the stone and that part of the setting is appx. 15.9mm from front-to-back and slightly over 17mm side-to-side. The band measures 6.2mm and has a split band at the top shoulders that forms into a single band that is 3.1mm at the back of the finger. The stone is oval and measures at appx. 4.56tcw. From the top of the finger to the top of the stone it is appx. 13mm. Clear and a golden clear color. Cut and clarity are beautiful. This has a triple leaf-like accent on the front and back with the curved side pieces meet. Very good condition, marked 14kt and Kevin. See photos. This came from a PA estate. See photos. (Lot Loc.

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.
