Mid 20th Century Graphic Malachite Apple Ring with Coral in 18k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A playful, mid 20th century ring, modeled in 18k yellow gold, whose face takes the form of an apple. The body of this apple is a beautifully-figured, flush-set, polished, malachite slab. A small coral leaf perches atop the green fruit, alongside its curved, gold stem. This ring's low-profile setting is highly-structured and airy, with a bypass-style shank that makes it very comfortable in wear. Our charming apple calls Apple Records to mind, and Eve (that much-maligned, trailblazing first woman), and teachers, of course. We love it for those reasons, but especially for its cheerful, bold, graphic quality! Marked 750 and 18kt for purity, for Italy, and with the maker's registration number.
