Insects are beautiful! This is a hand-carved beetle, cast in 14k white gold and set in a vintage Edwardian ring. The beetle is oval shaped, cast in 14k white gold with tiny yellow gold bead “eyes”. The beetle is set in 10k yellow gold ring with green and rose gold flowery accents. Overall width is 12.1 mm wide and tapers to 1.4 mm at the base of the shank. It is a US size 6 1/2 (and yes, it can be sized). Weight is 1.8 dwts.
All of my vintage-original items have elements that have been previously worn and loved so are sold as is. I have a long history in the jewelry industry (since 1993!) and am a certified GIA gemologist. I do my best to accurately describe items and am confident in my ability to assess stones, metal, construction, etc. I use the term “delicate” in many of my listings which I interpret to mean small or dainty. If the ring or item requires extra care when worn, usually I use “fragile” or “wear with care”. Most pieces have been lightly polished or cleaned, if possible, unless the process will damage or alter their natural patina. Some items can be altered, some cannot but please feel free to ask questions, I will answer them as quickly as I can. Please keep in mind that custom-altered pieces are non-returnable. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Return policy: I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. I will accept returns and refund the full amount paid less the cost of shipping and insurance. I ask that all items are returned to me in the same condition in which they were received and within two (2) weeks of receipt.
