Vintage marcasite ring, 925 marked, black stone, boxed
Marcasite ring with a black faceted central stone and a flower-shaped layered and pierced surround. The ring is 925 marked as silver.
The ring is beautifully presented in a cream coloured Bakelite ring box with an Art Deco pattern of columns to the front. The box is marked with the name "Ciro" to the inside of the lid.
I cannot confirm what the stone is - however it is crystal-like in form with a very lustrous surface reflecting the facets perfectly.
This is a beautiful piece of vintage jewellery; large and eye-catching enough to be a statement piece whilst retaining a delicacy in the sparkling petals of the surround. I cannot confirm when it was produced but assuming the box to be original I would estimate the 1930s to 1950s.
The ring is marked with "925" to the inside of the band. It is in a medium to large size R.
Condition is good. Some surface scratches to be expected of a vintage item but no damage and no missing stones.
