925 silver ring, black oval cabochon stone, marcasite bezel, size V
Sterling silver ring with a cabochon cut jet black oval stone to the centre, surrounded with a marcasite set bezel.The stone is centred across, rather than down, the finger at its widest point. The ring is presented in a green leatherette box containing the jeweller's name - Nigel Hughes of Chester.
I am not sure whether the stone is natural jet or black onyx, but it has no banding within, being entirely self-coloured and finished with a lustrous polish. The back of the stone is left in its natural matt finish.
This is the perfect ring to accompany the little black dress - The large size of the stone makes a statement, and the tiny sparkling marcasites would prettily reflect the colours from soft lighting.
This ring is for the larger finger, being in a size V.
The ring is marked to the inside band with "925", a quality grade of silver. It probably dates to the 1970s or 1980s.
Condition is good. Some surface scratches to be expected of a vintage item but no damage.
