Vintage Art Deco Sterling Silver Gray Chalcedony Ring, Southwestern, Fan, Chased, Sawtooth, Size 5 1/4 #c223
I present today this fantastic Art Deco, Southwestern sterling silver and chalcedony ring!

This sterling silver ring had me intrigued as soon as I saw it. The ring has a wonderful oval gray chalcedony stone on the face. The stone is set in an open back, sawtooth bezel and the stone has flat cut top most often seen in antique rings. A fabulous and very Art Deco, fan shaped frame with chased details surrounds the stone and flows over the sides of the ring shank. The ring is a juxtaposition of styles, exhibiting characteristics of Native American, Southwestern, Art Deco and antique jewelry. It is simply amazing!

The ring measures about a size 5 1/4 and weighs 5.0 grams. The face of the ring measures approximately 3/4 inch in length, and the chalcedony stone is about 9mm by 12mm. The stone tested in the quartz range on a Presidium gem tester, which is indicative of chalcedony. The ring is hallmarked "Sterling" on the inside of the ring band.

This ring is so unique and absolutely stunning! I love its mix of styles that is representative of jewelry created at the juncture of jewelry eras. It is large and quite impressive and makes a marvelous statement on the hand. The ring is in very good condition for its age. When viewed with high power magnification, I could see a couple of small light scratches to the stone. There are also a few flea bites on the edges of the stone, but neither the scratches or nibbles are very noticeable to the naked eye. The ring has been worn and loved, and the silver does have patina from age and scratches from use. There is a very slight movement to the stone, but it is definitely fixed and secure in the setting. There's nothing that detracts from this truly magnificent and very collectible vintage ring! It's a superb find!
