This lovely deco ring accentuates the diamond shaped onyx by its angular setting. The sharp edges are softened by the rounded shanked pierced with filigree details. I have had to do some restoration work to this ring by polishing the onyx and sizing up the ring because it was a very small finger size.
Gemstone: Diamond Shape Flat Onyx
Measurements: 17.9 x 9.5 mm
Dimensions: 26.3 x 14.3 mm / 3.1 - 1.8 mm wide shank
Metal: 14k yellow gold shank and bezel and white gold engraved frame
Finger Size: 6.75 fits like a 7 (inquire about sizing)
Weight: 3.3 grams
Condition Rating: 8 (onyx has been repolished, metal has been lightly polished)
Thanks for looking!!!

Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually.
For gold rings, the higher the karat weight, the softer the metal will be, and the easier it will scratch. Frequent polishing is unecessary. Polishing your rings removes layers of metals and will thin it out through time.
The same goes with platinum, as it is a malleable and softer metal, yet denser, which makes it last longer. Platinum is also a white metal naturally and stays white, whereas white gold is yellow that has white alloys giving it a whiter appearance, but will never be as white as platinum.
For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
