A beautiful vintage carnelian signet ring crafted in solid 9 carat yellow gold hallmarked in Birmingham in 1962. This wonderful classic ring is set with an oval carnelian gemstone in a simple gold mount with wide tapered shoulders that lead to a plain polished shank. Its simplicity and sophistication allows the wearer to appreciate the natural beauty of the gemstone. The carnelian shows a deep reddish/brown tone when worn but when held to the light glows a burnt orange tone. The yellow gold setting enhances the carnelian's allure providing a lustrous backdrop. In very good vintage condition with minimal light wear. There is some light surface scratching to the gold and a wonderful soft patina from previous use which add to the history and character of the piece. A fabulous vintage ring with a timeless retro design combining the vibrance of carnelian and the warmth of yellow gold, to provide a touch of charm to any outfit.

Care Instructions

Chemicals and chlorine can damage jewellery. It is recommended that you remove it when using body care products, spraying perfume or hairspray, bathing, swimming and whilst doing housework.

Settings and stones can be damaged by accidentally striking the hand against a hard surface. It is best to remove rings when carrying out any manual work or gardening.

To clean your jewellery use tepid water and a few drops of mild soap, a soft jewellery brush or cloth.

Extra care should be taken with opal, turquoise and pearl as these are porous so soaking should be avoided.  To clean wipe with a damp soft cloth and avoid extreme changes in temperature.

When you are not wearing your jewellery it is best stored away in a suitable jewellery box for safekeeping.
