This is an old (pre-1980s) Japanese Momo coral ring set on 9K solid yellow gold, and decorated with natural white Topaz, tested in Japan, and tested locally as well. All coral items are guaranteed genuine, no dyed or fake items, no any confusion stuffs such as sea-bamboo or weed-coral, all items are tested in Japan locally, and tested in Ireland locally, all precious metal are hallmarked and also tested. This ring is at Japanese size 13 and half, equals UK size M (might be slightly smaller but won't make any difference if you are size M), or between US size 6 1/2 and 7.
The coral on this ring is highly polished, no damage at all, but there are two tiny insect bites at one side, which it is completely normal, coral is organic semi-precious gem, just like amber or ivory. There are visible white growth marks on it, apparently the craftsman did not intend to avoid at all, however, it is also the sign of Japanese Momo or Aka coral, and the part of beauty as well. There is also very find growth cycle mark on the surface but not noticeable at all, and you probably won't see it. (please refer to the last photo). The colour is between ox-blood red and deep deep orange, I can not really describe the colour, please refer to the photos, these photos are taken under different light and different angle, you can easily see the colour difference between each photos.
This ring will make a wonderful gift for someone special, or reward yourself for a hard year! It can be re-sized within certain range, for example one size bigger or one size smaller, as you can see the gold base and the arm of the ring is very thick.Grab yourself a bargain, especially while the gold price is rocketing. The coral size is about 17.5 x 13.2mm, and the surface of the ring is about 22 x17mm, I have to say I think this ring is quite big for me, as it is not the delicate type, maybe because the Topaz decoration is too big, anyway, it is an old piece, and I like the original look.
It has been professionally cleaned. Please check out the size by using a ruler, the photos of the ring is on my finger just to give you a rough idea what it looks like, please try out the size yourself.
