A glamorous, oversized, 1960s cocktail ring, whose dome-like, wirework form supports a large, oval, bezel set, webbed-turquoise cabochon. The turquoise is natural, vibrant sky blue, and its dark black matrix is especially graceful, presenting like a disintegrating spiderweb, or like smoke. This audacious old darling is modeled in solid 14k gold, with a high-carat wash--- its high-gold color is a striking compliment to the vibrant blue turquoise. A slender, twisted wire, and a series of granulated beads decorate the base of the bezel. The ring's shoulders are each decorated with a clover. Marked 14, for purity. We like to imagine this ring worn at home, on a lazy hand, whilst its wearer lounges in a flowing caftan!
