Russian Nephrite Ring in Rose Gold
Russian nephrite has a regal history as a gemstone. Perhaps the worlds' most famous jeweler, Peter Carl Fabergé, created a host of legendary treasures for the royal house of Russia, many of which featured the country's distinctive, sumptuous nephrite jade. Here, a high-domed navette-shaped cabochon measuring approximately 23 mm x 10 mm is bezel-set into rich, 14k rose gold, the ideal color compliment for this particular shade of green. The nephrite has a high polish and good translucency. The last two images show this beautiful ring in natural light (albeit on a not-so-natural hand...) and as you can see, it is a classic, timeless jade ring in beautiful vintage condition. How vintage? Well, that's difficult to say with precision. While the design certainly evokes the Art Nouveau era with the leaf or butterfly-shaped embellishments on either shoulder and the very fine hand-notching all along the bezel, the overall lack of wear and the excellent condition leads me to conclude this ring was most likely created in the mid-century, probably in the 1960s or 1970s. Under a microscope, you can see that the ring is not brand new; it has a lovely patina. But it has also been recently polished. The nephrite is a rich, forest-green. And like jadeite, this nephrite stone changes throughout the day, depending on the lighting. In the evening indoors, this is one regal ring: the green could not be more evenly-saturated and the high-gloss polish makes this a real statement ring. Outdoors in natural lighting, you'll see more of the translucency of the stone. In some light, you might see a slightly blueish-gray tone. If you love jade but have never owned a ring of Russian jade, this is the perfect ring to introduce you to this luxurious, distinctive stone. This Russian nephrite ring is currently a size 8 but could be resized by your local jeweler.
