Vintage 14kt Nephrite Ring, Victorian Themed, Size 4, 8.75gr, 14 TCW
Vintage 14kt Nephrite Ring, large cabochon set in a crown-like Victorian themed setting. Age unknown. The white bands in the ring are reflections from the light strips - they are not within the stone. Signed with people or circle and lines pictograph with a K and the base of a circle and line where a foot would be. Quite possible a foreign mark. Tested multiple times and tsts as 14kt. Weight is 8.75 grams, that includes the stone. The stone is large at 20mm by 15mm and appx. 5mm deep - exact measurement not able to be obtained due to setting. The oval cabochon is held in by many crown-like tip prongs. It has a filigree undercarriage holding the stone up high - like a crown. It sits up appx. 12.5mm on the finger. The overall setting is 22mm by 17mm and cross the entire top of the finger. The band at the top of the finger is 5mm and it tapers to 1.7mm at the back of the finger. I do not know if this ring is true vintage or a more current ring because I do not know the marks. It tests as nephrite - has two black inclusions inside the stone. Very good condition This came from a PA estate. of a woman who sold jewelry. See photos. . (Lot. Loc. W.12.917G9.8). LD 3/12/19).
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.

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.
