This 1950s 10 karat yellow gold cocktail or statement ring features a large smooth oval cabochon of nephrite jade, set with six prongs to hold it in place, with a gold scalloped edging bordering the cabochon. This 1950s jade ring sits high on the finger, thanks to its raised cage setting, approximately 10mm above the band.
The nephrite jade is a pretty rich green in colour, and quite uniform in appearance, with a few dark flecks around the perimeter. The setting is airy in appearance, but made of a substantial amount of gold, and has a nice weight on the hand. The ring has more than enough gold to easily be sized up if you wanted it larger.
Condition: This ring is in excellent vintage condition, with no damage or flaws noted. While the jade cabochon does not feel loose, or visibly move, there is a slight click when the ring is moved, so one or more of the prongs will need to be adjusted by your local jeweller to correct this.
Thank you for looking at this beautiful vintage yellow gold and nephrite jade cocktail ring, and if you have any questions, please convo me!
Shipping costs are the cost of mailing an item, along with any necessary packing/packaging materials. If shipping costs seem high, sometimes they are. When estimating for the purposes of listing an item on Etsy, I have to list the most expensive possible shipping destination in a given country. More expensive items are shipped with tracking and insurance, which adds to the cost. If the difference between my shipping estimate and actual costs are greater than $2, I will refund you the difference.
If you are thinking of purchasing an item, contact me with your postal or mailing code, and I will check the precise shipping costs. For less expensive items (under $50), I am willing to ship by cheaper options, but please be aware that this can extend shipping times by 4 to 8 weeks for international shipping to some destinations.
In short, not turning a profit on postage, but need to cover the costs getting lovely jewellery from me to you!
