malachite and lapis lazuli inlay 18k gold ring


The Story

A beautiful vintage ring made from 18 karat yellow gold with a unique design. At front sits stripes of malachite and lapis lazuli. Inlayed with gold between the pieces, the stones sit flush against each other and curve with the surface of the ring.

Made during the late 20th century, circa 1960s-1980s, it's a stunning piece worn on its own or paired with other favorite rings. The curved design of the band feels amazing when worn. 

Because of the construction of the band and setting, it is not advised for this ring to be sized.
