I typically go for older antiques for the shop but this timeless design with the fabulous peach in the two tone setting made me pull the trigger for a retro piece for the shop.

A pop of gorgeous color and sparkle for your ring stack. These imperial topaz stones with their gorgeous peach color are sought after and collectible. This is a fun, chunky setting crafted in 18k gold with platinum bezel holding the oval peach topaz at the center situated east west.

It does have older style stamps, one a maker's mark and the other a worn 750 stamp, the numerical mark used in Europe for 18k gold. I purchased it at a buying appointment from a dealer friend of mine here in Minnesota.

Note that the photo in the box seemed to lighted the color of the topaz, making it a bit more pink in hue? I would say the video and the other photos capture the color a bit more true to live in that it is a warmer hue, quite lovely and rich. Also as seen in pics / video, it darkens when worn on the finger compared to when off the finger and the light can pass through.

Antique box is not included. Please note the measurements as I have small fingers and it can be difficult to determine scale from pictures.

Size: 5 1/2, a little over.
Weight: 7.25g
Ring face north south measurement: 8mm
Height off the finger: 4.6mm

The topaz is 7.5mm by 5.5mm so around 1 carat.

Three nibbles and the tiniest flea bites under magnification but the stone has an amazing color and a lovely sheen and polish, it is not heavily abraided.

Please also note that I take some photos / videos in the sunshine because it captures the lovely color and sparkle, but it also highlights any surface wear, scratches, abrasions, buildup or inclusions that can catch the light, making these things appear worse than they would with normal day to day wear. : ) Hopefully the pics in all lightning conditions help as they serve as part of the description.

There are no dark spots to the gold, it was just difficult to photograph because it is so shiny and mirrored that it reflects its surroundings.

Please note that all my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. They will have patina, surface wear, a few small nicks. These pieces may also have evidence of a sizing, some build up around the stones and / or inclusions seen under magnification, typical for antique pieces. I have mentioned any noticeable issues above and they are all still wearable and eager to be loved and accepted for many years to come, (the preservation of antique jewelry, even those with signs of their age and history, is important to me. : )
But - Please note due to age, this piece is not in mint condition. Pictures also serve as part of the description and condition report so please utilize the zoom feature which will magnify any wear significantly more than what is visible to the eye while wearing : )
