Large heavy solid vintage Mexican/Southwest charoite/quartz ring. The silversmith has created a heavy solid silver setting to mount this three-sided cut and polished charoite stone in. The large stone also displays a section of clear quartz on one end with light and dark purple swirls. The artist has used heavy gauge silver wire as the base which emits an open bottom. The artist sets the stone into a smooth silver bezel which works with the heavy gauge wire base to hold the stone in place. The open end also allows light to shine through the quartz section of the stone. The artist finishes by attaching a wide heavy gauge wire band.

The ring face measures 1 1/4" by 5/8" across and weighs a healthy 13.9 grams. It's a size 7 1/2 and is unsigned sterling silver. Very nice solid ring with beautiful stone. Charoite is only found along the Charo River in Russia. I understand that the darker the purple the more valuable the stone.  $99.95
