VINTAGE CHATHAM EMERALD, DIAMOND AND 18K GOLD RING*
Iconic and artistic vintage design from the 1950's, with chunky gold cubes echoing the forms of the Chatham emerald crystals, and accented with diamonds, and set in substantial 18k gold. Fully marked with British jewelry marks., and also bear initials WW.
Chatham emeralds were the first successful synthetic emeralds, but don't be fooled by their being synthetic - they were difficult to grow to a usable size, and were prized for use where crystal formations were wanted, and this was a popular element of '50's and '60's jewelry design. Size 5, can be easily re-sized.
