Ring Cycle

28 12 2012

Believe it or not, this beautifully detailed ring from the 1920s is an insignificant piece of costume jewelry.  Well, insignificant to you – better than diamonds to me.  Then again, my world was rocked by getting toilet paper this year for Christmas – more on that later in my next post – so I am ridiculously easy to please.  Don’t let the picture fool you, this ring is petite, sized for a lady.  The condition is excellent, retaining most of the original painted accents, and the faux ruby remains in place thanks to the extra time taken in creating prongs from the surrounding metal.  Does it fit me?  Yes.  Does it turn my skin greenish-grey?  Yes.  Do I care?  Oh, silly reader.  😉

Wonderful find. Does that mean it’s copper if it turns your finger green? I first noticed the prong on the faux ruby. Just shows the great detail on something that was considered costume or fun. Most department store jewelry nowadays won’t last as long as yours!

It could be copper or other metal – as I discovered by being rooked at a jewelry store that I ordered some “sterling” settings from.
