Vintage 9ct Gold Ring With Soude Emerald Gemstone UK Size S (A1744)
An interesting vintage 9ct gold ring. It is set with an intense green stone which is a soude sur spinelle emerald. This is a triplet stone with the crown and pavilion in lab created spinel sandwiching usually a sintered glass panel. As the name suggests they were intended to mimic an emerald and you can even see small inclusions under the microscope. An emerald this size, colour and clarity would of course be very expensive hence why these stones were created. Inside the band it has a 9ct mark for 9 carat gold in the older form and the ring likely dates from the 1970's. The stone is very attractive in good light.
