Victorian Navette Shaped 14K Gold & Silver Topped Ring with Turquoise & Diamonds

This beautiful navette shaped ring is a Victorian classic. Five turquoise cabochons are the central focal point, the center one being the largest with two others that flank in descending size. The largest turquoise cabochon is 5mm, then 3.75mm and 2.5 mm. Two of the stones have a beautiful oxidation giving them a greenish hue, a natural occurrence over time in antique turquoise. The navette shape of the ring is defined by 20 rose cut diamonds that surround the turquoise. The diamonds range in size from 3.5 mm to 2.5mm. They are old rose cuts and are chunky and included, but sparkly as well. The top of the ring is mounted in silver with the dark patina highlighting the delicate beads setting the stones. The ring shank and back of the ring is 14K rose gold.
The ring is a size 7.5 and has been acid tested to be 14K gold. It is in very good condition with a minor chip to one of the turquoise cabochons. It is a beautiful classic navette ring with a pop of color for the turquoise lover.
Circa 1880
