Antique 14k white gold Art Deco filigree Ruby Ring. The stone is a synthetic (lab-grown) emerald cut ruby. The mounting is a filigree design set in 14k white gold. Size 6 1/2. As you can see by the last 3 photos, I received this beautiful piece in damaged condition. The band had been cut, I'm assuming in order to either resize it or to test the metal content. It also appeared that the one side of the band had been smooshed and there was a few dents, as you can see from the photos. The metal was tested to verify the purity (as the purity mark is distorted). It was found to be 14k white gold. I was able to repair the cut in the band and fill in the dents on the lower part of the band. I was not able to fill the dents in the shoulder since it would remove the design as well. The underside of that section still shows some caving as well. I consider the remaining flaws as a testament to what this piece has endured. I gave this piece a final polish and its ready for its new owner. Ring will come in a small gift box, packaged securely in a priority small flat rate box and include insurance, tracking and signature confirmation.
