TIMELESS ELEGANCE ( Vintage Jewelry Pink Coral Cameo Ring ): I am so happy to be able to present this gorgeous Cameo Ring that I purchased from a private estate. It is the largest Cameo that I have seen set in a ring. She is the goddess Flora carved from pink angle-skin coral. I believe that this carving is from an earlier time than the ring setting. You just don't see this kind of work anymore – plus she is looking to the left, considered to be more valuable because it required a deft master's hand. This ring looks best on your right hand because she is facing inward. The Cameo sits very high on a 14KT base. The setting is visible when it's on you finger. (setting c. 1970) This Flora wears a Grecian style draped dress and a finely carved delicate drop earring. She wears several roses in her hair ready to welcome Spring, new life, regeneration and hope. The pink color is so perfect for Flora. Look closely at her hair with all of the waves, curls and locks hanging down her shoulder. Her face is just perfect! She is bezel set in a marked 14KT setting with a wire worked base and band. Take a moment to study the setting – its graceful and attractive. The current ring size is 7 3/4 to 8. It can be re-sized. I seldom offer rings, but this one is remarkable and memorable. Grab I quickly – I'm certain it's one of a kind!

Condition: Excellent. It may never have been worn. It comes in a tapestry bag.
Size: Large. 1 5/8” high, 1 1/4” wide. Cameo is 1/2” deep, setting lifts it to 7/8” high. The ring size is currently 7 ¾ - 8.
