An antique 14k yellow gold signet circa 1900, set with a rectangular piece of polished gold quartz displaying an intricate veining of pure gold. Sometimes gold quartz will exhibit other minerals in the matrix like pyrite, silver or copper; this particular specimen has interesting bits of silvery material visible deep within it. Measuring approximately 5/8" north to south with a simple bold style that directs all attention to the stone. The smooth shoulders gradually taper from the height of the face to a 4.01 width at the center back of the band. Currently size 8 and resizable at least two full sizes without issue. Please convo me before purchase if you are interested in the details of our sizing service. Originally discovered during the mid-19th century gold rush in California, gold quartz became very popular for souvenir and statement jewelry throughout the Victorian era, with a resurgence during the Alaskan gold rush of the late 1800s. In excellent condition with an antique patina speaking to its age and history, and a few light marks on the surface of the metal including a small nick in the shank towards the back of the face. The stone was a bit loose in its bezel so our setter secured it with a clear polymer to avoid any damage to the bezel's fine edge. This is not visible when worn but will keep the ring stable for another 120 years of service. Not marked for gold content but acid tests to 14k. Total weight approximately 7.5 grams. ⌘ The Eden Collective Ring Shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939721&ref=shopsection_leftnav_1 ⌘ We are happy to offer layaway.
