How sad! the diamond setting for this lovely ring is damaged. Whether it was suffered over time and/or in shipment, we do not know...
But the natural tourmaline is intact and gorgeous! It is bezel set in 18K solid red gold* on a white base and is encircled with diamonds (3 are missing) to form a halo ring. The tourmaline is oval shaped, measures 5x8mm and shows a few scratches commensurate with its age. But it takes a 10x loupe to see them. The white diamond base contrasts beautifully with the filigree undercarriage which is in bright reddish gold. The gallery has not been damaged.
The shank is also beautiful with its 18K solid yellow gold and white gold shoulders overlay.
It is a lovely ring and it is a sad thing that it was damaged. Make sure you zoom on the photographs showing the damage, particularly in the photo of the size of the ring.
The natural tourmaline is quite beautiful and pinkish in tone. Three diamonds are missing in the set. But while it is damaged, the the ring is strong due to the solidity of the basket and the incredible craftsmanship. (see photo of hand wearing ring).
The ring is stamped twice. Once with the French Eagle Head stamp which guarantees its solid 18 carat content. The second stamp is the maker’s mark.
