Modernist Futuristic Fantasy Cut Morganite Shield Ring in 18k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A large modernist ring, made in 18k yellow gold and featuring a light-pink, fantasy-cut morganite gem. This morganite is nineteen-plus carats. It is deeply craved, on its reverse side, in an asymmetrical manner that suggests a landscape— this carving creates the unusual play of light that is unique to fantasy cut gems. The weighty setting is composed of a deep bezel and a split flat wire shank that stands proud of this bezel, at the shoulder. The overall effect is futuristic, celestial, otherworldly, though I also see a Nguni shield suggested by the stone's perimeter. This ring is one of a kind and endlessly fascinating.
US 7 3/4. This ring can be resized, to some extent; please contact us if you are interested in resizing.
Ring face measures approx 1" x 3/4". Morganite is approx 19 carats. Weight is approx 17.8 grams.
Morganite is a natural gemstone belonging to the Beryl family, which also claims emerald and aquamarine. The fantasy cut concept was originally created by Bernd Munsteiner (b. 1943).
