AN ANTIQUE ART DECO 14K WHITE GOLD & 2.5+ CARATS CITRINE RING!

IT'S VERY SELDOM ONE FINDS AN ORIGINAL 1930'S ART DECO ERA RING IN THIS AMAZING CONDITION OR OF SUCH A FABULOUS AND INTRICATE DESIGN. THE CENTRAL UNIQUELY FACETED MARQUISE SHAPED DEEP COLORED CITRINE (A TYPE OF GEM GRADE QUARTZ) IS FANTASTIC AND QUITE LARGE MEASURING 11.7mm BY 7.7mm (LENGTH & WIDTH) WITH A WEIGHT OF 2.57 (OVER 2&1/2) CARATS. THIS IS A TOP GRADE CITRINE WITH FINE CLARITY AND VERY TRANSLUCENT. THE EXQUISITE ALL SOLID 14KT WHITE GOLD MOUNTING IS CRAFTED WITH A DESIGN OF OPENWORK FILIGREE THAT IS MAGNIFICENTLY DECORATED WITH THE MOST OUTSTANDING HAND CARVED & ENGRAVED DECORATIONS OF THE MOST EXQUISITE RAISED FLOWERS AND RIBBON SWAGS AMOUNGST A OPEN CAGE BACKGROUND WITH EVERY BAR AND BORDER MICRO BEADED. THE TOP & BOTTOM TIPS DESIGNED WITH HAND ENGRAVED LEAVES AND THE SIDES THE SHANK (BAND) ALSO CARVED WITH A PATTERN OF TAPPERING FLOWERS. THE DETAILING IS BEYOND FANTASTIC AS EVEN THE BEZEL SET SURROUNDS OF THE CITRINE ARE CARVED WITH DELICATE BEADING. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A FINER OR MORE MASTERFULLY SCULPTED RING. I KEPT THIS AMAZING RING EVER SINCE ACQUIRING IT SOME TWO DECADES AGO IN HOPES THAT I COULD SOME DAY FIND AN OLD CUT MARQUISE DIAMOND TO SET IN THE CENTER. OBVIOUSLY I NEVER DID AND GLAD THAT I KEPT THIS INCREDIBLE RING INTACT ALL COMPLETELY ORIGINAL. THIS RING IS CURRENTLY A SIZE 5&1/2 (5.5) AND WITH THE PLAIN BACK, IT IS EASILY SIZEABLE TO ACCOMODATE YOUR SPECIFIC SIZE AND I HAVE JUST THE JEWELER WHO IS AN EXPERT WITH ANTIQUE ~ VINTAGE JEWELRY. WHEN I FIRST DISCOVERED THIS AS PART OF AN ESTATE I WAS HANDLING OF AN ARCHITECT'S WIFE IN PASADENA, CALIFORNIA. I COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT IT WAS STILL IN SUCH PHENOMENAL CONDITION AFTER ALMOST 60 YEARS (NOW ABOUT 80 YEARS). IT HAS ALOT TO DO WITH THE SUBSTANTIAL HEFT AND QUALITY OF CRAFTSMANSHIP THAT HAS ALLOWED IT TO REMAIN UNSCATHED IN EVERY ASPECT. THE RING HAS A TRULY SOLID FEELING WITH A PLEASING WEIGHT OF 3 GRAMS WHICH IS HEAVY FOR A FILIGREE TYPE RING BUT ANTIQUE JEWELRY WAS MADE WITH THE IDEA THAT JEWELRY SHOULD LAST A LIFETIME WITH THE INTENTION TO BE ENJOYED BY FUTURE GENERATIONS UNLIKE THE DISPOSABLE JEWELRY MADE NOW-A-DAYS THAT'S SO LIGHTWEIGHT, FLIMSY AND MASS PRODUCED WITH NO DETAILING OR HAND WORK. I CAN'T FATHOM WHERE ONE WOULD EVEN BEGIN TO FIND A RING LIKE THIS MADE TODAY AS IT TRULY IS THIS TYPE OF HIGH QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP THAT HAS BECOME A LOST ART. WHEN YOU ACTUALLY EXAMINE THE NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN MICROSCOPIC PERFECTION OF THE BEAUTIFUL FLORAL AND FOLIATE PATTERNING & TRY TO FATHOM THIS BEING DONE AT A TIME WHEN A MODEL "A" WAS THE POPULAR AUTOMOBILE, IT BECOMES CLEAR THAT IT TOOK A MASTER GOLDSMITH TO CREATE SUCH A MASTERPIECE. I AM MOST CERTAIN THAT THIS, THE WONDERFUL CITRINE GEM, GOLD WEIGHT AND ARTISTRY WERE ALL FACTORS WHEN THE GIA (GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF AMERICA) GRADUATE GEMOLOGIST APPRAISER PROVIDED HIS INSURANCE EVALUATION FOR AN ESTIMATED RETAIL REPLACEMENT VALUE OF $2,419.00. IT WOULD SURELY COST YOU MORE TO HAVE ANY JEWELER (IF YOU COULD EVER FIND ONE) CREATE SUCH A SPLENDID JEWEL BUT LUCKY YOU GETS TO DECIDE THE TRUE VALUE WITH ALL MY NO RESERVE AUCTIONS. I KNOW YOU'LL FIND THIS RING EVERY BIT AS FASCINATING AND THAT IT WILL BECOME AN INSTANT FAMILY HEIRLOOM THE MOMENT YOU SLIT IT ON. IT'S HARD TO PUT A VALUE ON SOMETHING SO SPECIAL WHICH IS WHY I LEAVE THAT UP TO YOU! THE INTERIOR OF THE SHANK IS MARKED "14K" FOR ALL SOLID (585 PURITY) REAL 14KT WHITE GOLD. I KNOW IT CAN BE SCARY BUYING DIAMOND & GEMSTONE JEWELRY ON THE INTERNET, ESPECIALLY ON EBAY SO I AM NOW OFFERING AN AGL APPRAISAL WITH SELECT ITEMS THAT HAVE SIGNIFICANT VALUE. I HAVE CHOSEN AN INDEPENDANT GIA GRADUATE GEMOLOGIST WHO HAS TAKEN AND COMPLETED EVERY COURSE OFFERED RELATING TO GEMS & JEWELRY. I HAVE CHOSEN THIS APPRAISER WITH NO VESTED INTEREST IN MY JEWELRY OR BUSINESS SO THAT THE ITEMS YOU RECIEVE FROM ME WILL SURELY EXCEED ANY EXPECTATION RELATING TO YOUR DESIRE FOR MAGNIFICENT JEWELRY. I HOPE THE APPRAISAL WILL BE USEFUL IN GUIDING YOU TO FIND THINGS THAT YOU WILL ENJOY AND CHERISH FOR DECADES & GENERATIONS TOO COME. THE APPRAISAL NOT ONLY PROVIDES ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR MAKING VALUEABLE DECISIONS FOR BIDDING BUT CAN ALSO BE USED WHEN INSURING YOUR NEW PURCHASE. THE ORIGINAL APPRAISAL WILL BE INCLUDED TO THE LUCKY HIGH BIDDER OF THIS AUCTION WHEN RECEIVING THIS ITEM. THIS STUNNING ORIGINAL ART DECO ERA 14K WHITE GOLD & FACETED MARQUISE SHAPED CITRINE RING IS ABSOLUTELY 100% ORIGINAL! IF YOU LOVE FANTASTIC ANTIQUE JEWELRY THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS SPECTACULAR MASTERFULLY CRAFTED CITRINE FILIGREE RING! THESE SELDOM FOUND ANTIQUE ART DECO ERA JEWELRY PIECES ARE BECOMING ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND AT ANY PRICE BUT I HAVE, AS ALWAYS, STARTED THIS WITH A VERY LOW OPENING BID TO MAKE IT AFFORDABLE TO EVERYONE WHO ADORES THE FINEST IN GENUINE CITRINE RINGS. THIS HAS SINCE BEEN PART OF MY PERSONAL COLLECTION OF FINE JEWELRY WHICH IS FOR THE FIRST TIME BEING OFFERED TO ALL THE WONDERFUL EBAY COLLECTORS WHO APPRECIATE ONLY THE FINEST EXAMPLES OF ORIGINAL ANTIQUE ART DECO SOLID 14KT WHITE GOLD & 2.57 CARATS T.W. CITRINE RINGS. THIS WAS NEVER IN MY STORE INVENTORY BUT KEPT AT HOME IN MY JEWELRY CHEST. I AM GETTING UP THERE IN YEARS JUST TURNING 82 YEARS YOUNG AND HAVE CLOSED MY STORE SO NOW IT IS TIME FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO CHERISH MY PERSONAL TREASURES AND TAKE THE SAME CARE THAT ONLY A LOVER OF REAL ANTIQUES AND FINE JEWELRY CAN PROVIDE ONE OF MY FAVORITE POSSESSIONS. I HOPE THIS WILL BE ENJOYED AND TREASURED FOR AS MANY YEARS AS I HAVE PRIDED HAVING THIS GORGEOUS ANTIQUE ART DECO ERA REAL 14K WHITE GOLD & 2.57 CARAT MARQUISE SHAPE CITRINE RING IN MY COLLECTION. ENJOY AND HAPPY BIDDING!

F.Y.I. I am a 3rd generation antiques dealer & have been in the fine antiques business for over 30 years. I have had several open stores over these years but now with rents out of the realm of reality & my age creeping up on me, I have closed the last of them & I am now concentrating all efforts to on line sales. I am very knowledgeable about all types of antiques. I do not & will not sell fakes or reproductions of anything. All my items are 100% as described & the pictures prove it! Any damage or imperfection is noted and all items are mailed with an invisible ID mark that only I know of. This will eliminate anyone trying to item switch a broken treasure with my perfect piece. If you want any other detail about an item, please ask & be certain to include your direct email address for a reply. Ebay does not allow my sending pictures thru their email service. I will try to accomodate all requests on 1st come, 1st served daily basis. I do not sell outside ebay so do not ask. I can offer a very expensive buy it now if you must have it today! I ship 1 day a week so please be patient. Everything is very carefully packed as I love my things & want you to enjoy them in the same condition as I have. All items are sent via USPS & Insured at full value. Sorry if this costs International buyers more but these are ebay's rules & I will follow them to the letter. Please work out any special payment request in advance as all sales should be simply processed through PayPal unless we have made prior arrangements. Ask any & all questions before you bid as the bid is your contract to purchase. I allow 5 days for payment in full otherwise the item is sold to the next highest bidder or re-listed & I will leave appropriate feedback to all non paying bidders. I hope everything is very plain & simple to understand but do not be shy about asking anything should you require additional info or details. I hope you enjoy each & every item as most are from my private collection assembled over the past 30 years and never before offered for sale. Each piece is very special, of great quality, rare for its' kind and worthy of any advanced collection. Thank You, Bernice Ellen
