STEPHEN DWECK” CARVED TOPAZ RING: I am offering a stunning carved smoked Topaz ring by Stephen Dweck, known as the “Romancer of the Stone”. Stephen's influence from nature can be seen in this signature flower design ring. The oval cabochon Topaz has been deeply hand-carved into a single blossom. The stone appears a smoked brown color with glints of the golden yellow topaz when seen under light. There is a silver wire twist at the base of the floral carving, as well as a surround of antiqued gold orbs. The split ring shank is decorated with lines of graduated orbs. The inside of the ring band in hallmarked “Stephen Dweck”, “992 Sterling” and his name is followed by his signature “beetle” design within a small circle.The ring size is a 6. I wore this beauty for about 20 years, mixing it with yellows, browns and greens. It is a striking ring recognized immediately by those in the know as a Dweck design. A terrific gift for yourself or for some lucky friend or relative. Grab it now for a bargain price!

Condition: Excellent.
