The modelling is super as the rich buttery yellow 14k splash of gold raises from the finger centering around the pretty jewel Daisy Cluster of sparkling natural Blue Sapphires. The ring works wonderfully on the finger and is actually really comfortable to wear with no sharp edges and a sturdy textured shank typical of these studio pieces of 1960's and 70's jewellery. It feels nice and substantial and is a good weight at approximately 6.5gs.
The finger size of the ring is to fit approximately O 1/2 UK, 7 1/2 US, 56 international size. The ornate head of the ring measures approximately 18 mms x 15 mms at the widest points.It stands about 10 mms high off the finger at the front from the base of the shank to the tip of the splashes at either side. A textured shank smooth from the shoulders to the reverse stamped 14ct Gold to the interior.
Laser and acid tests at 585 gold (14k gold). They say good design is timeless and this ring looks as fresh, cutting edge and on trend as it did in the 1960's to 1970's era it was made. Clearly a one off studio designer piece that was skilfully designed and made by the lost wax technique which was a favourite of many of the modernist American Studio Jewellers. The ring actually looks much prettier in real life than the photos and the Sapphires do have a lovely velvety blue twinkle to them.
