Hand-made 18ct Gold and Pink Tourmaline Ring
                                                                                                                                  
The vintage 18ct rose gold ring is hand-made in South Africa, with a distinctive mid-20th Century flair. The ring has a round-cut, pink tourmaline (approximately 8.5mm diameter – circa 2.4ct; soft strawberry pink colour; moderate inclusions; shows minor signs of wear appropriate to age) tube-set in the centre. The tube has a wire twist surround at its base, and stands on top of a convex-bowed element with outward spoked grooves. The bowed element is surrounded by a thicker wire twist. The ring is marked “18ct”; the South African springbok head in a ‘U’ symbol used 1948-1973; the date letter for 1954; and a maker’s mark that has not been identified.
