A vintage c1940 Art Deco ring with a large hand faceted uranium glass crystal set in 14K yellow gold. 

Uranium glass (aka vaseline glass) is a material more common to decorative glassware than jewelry, that fluoresces a strange neon green in daylight-- owing to trace amounts of uranium in the glass. It is generally negligibly radioactive and considered harmless. 

Currently a size 5 and could be resized in the 4 to 7 range for $75.

Materials

Glass and 14K Gold

Date

Condition

Good. Minor abrasions to stone. Mounting appears to have been plated white at some point, with traces of the white remaining on the shoulders of the ring. If you would like it re-plated all white, or to have the plating removed, it can be done at no additional charge.

Size

US Size 5 (could be resized in the 4 to 7 range for $75)
