Vintage Emerald and Diamond 18K Gold Ring


In stock


An exotic 18K gold ring of a horned animal with a cabochon emerald body and diamond-studded posterior. The horned animal is beautifully and carefully handcrafted using bas relief techniques. The animal seems to be either a scimitar oryx, a gazelle, or a sea goat (the symbol of Capricorn). Either of these representations have associations with purity and virtue. The scimitar oryx is believed to have been used as offerings to gods. The Greek meaning of oryx means gazelle or antelope. On the other hand, the sea goat represents steadfastness and achievement. The fact he is made of emerald, the gemstone of love and purity, further enhances the symbolism of the purity of body, mind, and spirit. The large size and unusual design make this an eye-catching accessory.

Weighs approximately 14 grams.

Ring Size: 7.5.

The gold is textured due to the design and detail of the ring. Some slight imperfects due to hand carving making this ring unique. The diamond chips and emerald are intact. The hallmarks have faded but the ring has been tested for gold content. We will be happy to provide further images upon request.
