A vintage modernist ring set with a large, cube-shaped, carnelian gemstone. The cube is polished smooth with perfect, soft-square edges. The finish of the gem is softly matte, which gives it a wonderful, hazy, translucent quality. This ring is made with highly stylized, dual, flat-profile bands that cross at the back to form an x-shape. Metal is high-polished 14k yellow gold. Gemstone is natural. Unexpected proportions . . . simple lines . . . contrasting textures . . . exceptional balance . . . this jewel is very cool in wear! 

This is clearly marked, but I have yet to identify the designer. Marked also for 14k gold.
