Midnight - Vintage 10K Black Onyx Gents Ring (VR397)
Midnight - Vintage 10K Black Onyx Gents Ring. This wonderful ring is crafted from 10K yellow gold, and hallmarked with a makers name Columbia. Featuring a genuine black onyx gemstone, classic styling and quality gold-work. The onyx in this ring is a beautiful smooth jet black colour. The gemstone is in amazing pristine condition. The bezel, which houses the gem has an attractive octagon shape, leading down to a bevelled gallery and shoulders. The gallery also features a closed back, which is a high- quality feature (giving the ring more weight, and it helps to keep the ring clean) not often seen in rings of today. The closed back and smooth, polished shank also allows for a comfortable fit. This Vintage ring is beautifully executed, it is elegant, bold and masculine. Truly a very special gift for that special someone, or wonderful addition to any fine jewelry collection.
Note: Appraisal included with the ring.
