Vintage 10kt Swiss Blue Topaz Ring, Multi-Stone, Appx. 2.75 TCW, Size 10.25, 3.35gr.
10kt Swiss Blue Topaz Ring, three oval stones, appx. 2.75 TCW. Signed Mei and marked 10kt and tested. Weight of the ring is appx. 3.35. grams. It has a filigree nugget like setting for the stones - there are three stones - the center is appx. 7.5mm by 6mm and the side stones are appx. 6.5mm by 4.5mm. Prong-Set. They sit in a raised, what looks like a mound of gold nuggets - filigree with openings between some of the areas of the setting. The ring is 10mm across the top of the finger and 17mm wide from side-to-side where the nugget look is. The band tapers from 5mm at the edge of the nugget look and tapers into a smooth band that is 1.8mm at the back of the finger. The top of the stones sit up slightly over 7mm from the top of the finger. The blue is a rich and clear blue. Swiss Blue topaz starts as white or colorless topaz from either Brazil or Sri Lanka. It is then irradiated to activate the intense, stable color centers that give us that electric, vivid colors. It holds up to wear. Topaz can also be lab created meaning the crystals are grown with the exact properties as natural topaz. They are not glass but a gemstone with the same chemical make-up as a natural stone. Using lab created stones make jewelry more affordable as the created stones are not as expensive as the natural stone but have all the qualities of one. This came from a PA estate. See photos. (Lot.

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.
