Domed European Modernist Lapis Lazuli 14K Gold Ring
This 14 karat gold lapis lazuli modernist cocktail ring is made in Europe in the 1960s. The band and mount fit around a highly saturated lapis stone. The line of the ring are soft and follows the curves of the gemstone. The deep cobalt color of this lapis makes it a high quality stone; it has tiny flecks of metallic gold pyrite, that add a beautiful texture to the stone. The stone is approximately 1/2 an inch by 3/4 of an inch and beautifully domed. The ring is a size 6-1/2 with the possibility of resizing it. Weighs 6.9 grams. It is marked on the interior of the band with 585 and a maker's mark.
A fantastic example of modernist organic design with Gaudi inspired lines and soft edges.
