Sterling Silver Figural Frog Ring size 7.75
http://bit.ly/21M7B55
This sterling silver ring is executed in the shape of a frog. It is 11/16 inch from legs to nose and 3/4 inch wide from toe to toe. The inside of the band is stamped 925 but much of the stamp is worn away so only the bottoms of the numbers show. The top of the ring stands off the finger 3/16 inch. The condition is excellent and ring weighs 4.2 grams.

10K #YellowGold Balfour Foo Dog Shi #Signet #Ring size 11.5
This is a deeply engraved image of a #protective Foo (Fu) Dog or Imperial Lion on a solid 10K yellow #gold signet ring. The Foo Dog or Shi is #representative of #protection and #security. This #ring style has existed and was used for centuries as a seal on paper messages to signify the author of the document. The ring was pressed into a bit of warm wax used to hold the paper folded closed, leaving the image in the cooled wax. 40 years ago this was a popular novelty (again) and I expect this ring dates to the 1970's. It is in virtually #new condition. The ring is #solidly constructed and the flat oval top measures 11/16 inch by 5/8 inch. It stands off the finger 1/16 inch at the top and the band tapers to 1/8 inch wide in the back. This wonderful ring weighs 12.6 grams and comes with the original Balfour brown velvet box. The inside of the ring is #engraved BALFOUR and a weird 10KK; to ensure the metal content, we confirmed this as 10K with acid on a stone.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: #Chineseguardian lions or Imperial guardian lion, traditionally known in Chinese simply as Shi (Chinese: 獅; pinyin: shī; literally: "lion"), and often called "Foo Dogs" in the West, are a common representation of the lion in pre-modern China. Statues of guardian lions have traditionally stood in front of Chinese Imperial palaces, Imperial tombs, government offices, temples, and the homes of government officials and the wealthy, from the Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 220), and were believed to have powerful mythic #protective benefits.

#Condition#Excellent

Comments: This ring likely dates to the 1980s. At the center is a round #faceted cubic zirconia 7 mm in diameter which has the look of a 3/4 #carat diamond.

This is a great high quality ring with a fantastic look. It is not for the lady who likes a dainty ring. This is a large ring, the top measures 1 1/16 inch by 15/16 inch and the top stands off the finger 3/8 inch. The top of the ring has an oval of turquoise at the center measuring 5/8 inch by 7/16 inch with bezel of vermeil, then around this inner element is an oval border of carved black onyx 5/32 inch wide. There are 4 decorative design elements set with tiny round faceted diamond accents at the top and bottom and sides of the ring. The metal is sterling silver vermeil which means this had the look of high quality yellow gold, but is silver with a heavy plating of high karat gold. The condition of this ring is excellent and the inside of the band is stamped 925FP CHINA. This ring is a size 11 and would not be a good candidate for sizing due to the vermeil. The ring weighs 10 grams.

Large #Vintage #Oval #European 800 #Silver and #Moss #Agate #Brooch
http://bit.ly/1Jaws6J

Material: 800 silver and a moss agate oval flat cabochon of 1 1/8 inches by 1 3/8 inches.

Dimensions: 2 3/16 inches wide and 1 15/16 inches tall. It is approximately 5/16 inch thick not including the pin stem.

Marking: 800 on back of the frame.

Condition: Wonderful condition, which is a lower silver content than sterling often used in older European jewelry. The stone is securely set in a raised bezel. There is a C catch without a safety.

Comments: This large brooch was likely intended for wear on a kilt sash. This piece is really top-notch and likely dates to the early part if the 1900s. 1999
