This ring takes traditional Art Deco black onyx rings for a contemporary spin. Staying true to the look of the onyx and diamond rings of the past, this ring features a genuine old cut marquise diamond that was removed from an old ring and reset here in a new 14k yellow gold and white onyx setting. The center diamond is an estimated 0.50ct, H color, VS clarity but has not been confirmed by an appraiser. Loose, it measured 5.7 x 4.7 x 2.9mm. It's a really special shape that you don't see often in old cuts.
A white onyx cabochon was custom cut to fit around the yellow gold bezel as a one-piece halo.
The setting is set low to the finger to protect the onyx halo and keep the setting close to the hand. Like my other gemstone halo rings, is is recommended that this ring be worn like an antique and treated with care.
With the onyx included, the setting measures 9.7 x 8.5 mm. The band is about 1.8mm wide and thick throughout, for a solid shank that will last. It is currently a size 6 and can be carefully resized by my team. Please note that resized rings are non-refundable.
About White Onyx:
"White onyx" is another name for white agate, and is said to be a grounding stone, bringing about an emotional, physical and intellectual balance. Agate is also a stone of marital and relational fidelity.
Agate was used by the Ancients on the breastplates of armor to give warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Energetically, it was considered to give strength in battle and was also believed in the past to be a very protective stone.
Making a Difference:
Help fight climate change with this purchase! Trees are like the lungs of the planet...our "natural air purifiers." They breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. Additionally, they provide habitat for birds and other wildlife and play a vital role in our natural water cycle. Forests help regulate the water in the air through a process called transpiration. They absorb thousands of gallons of water into their roots. Excess water is then released through the leaves back into the air. For every purchase made, I donate one planted tree through Plant-It 2020. Small changes by individuals can make a difference in the fight against climate change.
