This stunning vintage solid 18K white gold ring features a sparkling round diamond in a fanciful filigree and milgrain leaf & flower setting. It would work equally well for a right hand fashion ring, a unique wedding band, or one-of-a-kind engagement ring.

This beautiful Art Deco ring measures approximately 9mm wide on top and 1.5mm wide at back. The brilliant diamond is approx. 3mm (I'd estimate that it's about .10 carat weight). Ring is in good vintage condition with some small scratches & wear to the gold. Diamond is brilliant and white in color; there are some small inclusions visible when I loupe the ring (10 power magnification), but nothing obvious to my naked eye (please see close up photos).

Ring is currently a size 5-1/4 (resizable by your jeweler). It is not marked inside (likely due to a sizing down in the past, evident by faint yellow gold solder where sized at back) but was tested by my jeweler and found to be 18 karat gold. This lovely old ring weighs 2.3 grams.

The diamond is April's birthstone. The ancient Romans and Greeks believed that diamonds were the tears of the gods, or possibly even splinters that had broken off of falling stars. Roman literature also stated that Cupid’s irresistible arrows were tipped with diamonds. Classical Greek philosopher Plato went even further to write about diamonds as living beings that embodied celestial spirits. This romantic ring says "Marry Me", "I Love You" and/or "Merry Christmas!" It will be nestled in the lovely silver and black Art Deco vintage ring box shown and shipped Priority Mail, insured, with signature confirmation upon delivery.

Please check shop announcement for shipping delay info. Unless special arrangements have been made, veraviola generally ships via USPS once a week (usually Thursdays). All items are as packaged as carefully as possible - I want things to arrive to you in the same condition in which they left me. I do often use recycled packaging, but pack to hold up to heavy handling & inclement weather.

***INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING is available on all items - Just Convo me for a quote, if not already listed!*** I'm happy to ship internationally. Please note, however, that veraviola is not responsible for any VAT/Customs fees that may be related to to your order nor will we help you in illegally circumventing these fees if they are applicable to you. Falsifying customs declarations or having an item marked as "gift" in order to avoid customs fees is classified as Mail Fraud and is a felony.

Refunds

As veraviola sells almost exclusively vintage & antique items, it is likely nothing will be "like new." I strive to mention any wear, soiling or flaws. However, since condition is often subjective, I will also do my best to provide very detailed photos for your examination. But please contact me with any problems or concerns ~ I do want your experience with Vera Viola to be memorable in a good way!

Jewelry is sold on an 'as is' basis, so please ask any questions before purchasing. I provide multiple photos and a detailed description.

Please convo me immediately with your reason if you are wanting to return any purchase. Buyer is responsible for return postage. The item would need to be shipped via a tracked, insured method AND received back by me in its original condition and original packaging within 14 days of the transaction (domestic orders). If these conditions are met, I will then refund the payment (less the original shipping charge) - the exception being layaways (please see layaway policy in the "additional information" section).

Additional

While my home is smoke & pet free, please remember that the items I sell lived somewhere else for many years before they came home with me! Also, as a rule, I generally just dust off the items and send them on their way. I do not clean, polish or scour away sticker residue. I leave that to the new buyer.
