I adore vintage gypsy rings, and this one is so delightfully chunky. It is crafted of sterling silver, and set with a table-cut glass garnet, with smaller accent stones flanking the sides. A "Gypsy" ring refers too a ring in which a stone is set into the band (also called a flush-mount setting) so that the gemstone becomes part of the rings structure. Gypsy rings became popular during the Victorian era; in an effort to conceal their wealth and the true value of their possessions from thieves, wealthy members of Victorian society set their diamonds and other gemstones flush to the setting. This made the stone appear smaller at first glance, as part of its mass is hidden beneath the ring's surface. It is a ring size US 6.5 and could be resized within reason if needed. It appears the ring may have been resized at one point,  and  in the process lost any sterling silver hallmark it may have had, but it is indeed sterling silver. The Vintage Amethyst Band, Vintage Emerald Cut Ring, and Vintage Swirl Statement Ring pictured are also available.

Great vintage condition. There is a tiny minuscule chip in the center stone, but it's only noticeable when closely inspected (I've expected it under a jeweler's loup/magnifying glass). With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email shop@verybreezy.com for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
