Prized since antiquity for it's intense colour, most Lapis Lazuli is found in Afghanistan where it has been mined since the 7th millenium BC. This powerful vintage ring is a wonderful example of high quality Lapis, the Pyrite inclusions gleaming like Gold. The gorgeous swooping shaping of the shoulders is particularly flattering on the hand and it would suit either gentleman or lady.
Marked '585, it is 14ct yellow gold, and so most likely has Continental origins. We can adjust the size to fit, currently an 'R' or US '8.5'. The head of the ring measures 12mm by 14mm.
