Vintage 9 Diamond ring - bizarre history - genuine stones size 7 1/2 gold one of a kind - cluster 14kt gold harem jewelry
You all remember Lola our showgirl don't you? I have sold a few pieces from her estate on etsy before. Well this one was a token of gratitude from a high rolling gambler who adored our showgirl from Las vegas. She lived in New York and traveled back and forth to her NY apt and in the midst met quite a lot of generous and unusual characters. This gentleman was an import exporter who adored her and took her to Monaco to gamble in Monte Carlo.. SHe was such good luck, he had one of the artisans in Monte Carlo make her this genuine diamond ring with the amount of millions she won him. Yes.. I said millions thus giving her this NINE diamond ring ( for nine MILLION) set in 14kt gold . . The diamonds are hidden under small mountains of gold because he said she was a hidden treasure to him. ( diamonds hidden under gold.. see the connection?). Well he was quite the smoozer and she was up for the thoughtful, and a little bit gaudy gift.
The ring has a large top setting that measures almost as large as quarter ( a tad over 1") and it has tiny silver bead work all around it ( a few are missing). The ring is a size 7 1/2 and is completely hand wrought. The large center diamond is 10mm (a little less than 1/2") Many artisans set up shop in Monte carlo because when winners win.. they want to SPEND.... So this custom ring came to being at well over a few thousand dollars which was just a drop in the bucket to what he won. IT is the thought that counts ( and the private plane there and all the fabulous hotel rooms and clothes that help as well).Sold as is. The band has not been tested for silver content.
Not for the insecure or faint of heart!
Sometimes, a personal well thought out gift shows you took the time to care about that special person in your life. Our items are classic, sometimes unusual and vintage and sometimes a little bizarre. Whether it is a memory from their past or something that reminds you of how special they are, purchasing from us is a unique idea that you can’t get from a store every day.
Just say the word and we will wrap it and put a beautiful bow on it for you at no extra charge .
All you have to do it watch them smile and enjoy their special gift
Because these are vintage estate pieces and are vintage and possibly pre-worn so they are not considered new from the factory….. Please see photos for any wear or light surface scratches that come with age.?………………. Sold as is and priced accordingly.. All jewelry ( unless otherwise specified) is considered costume jewelry. We don’t polish these previously owned well loved pieces so we can keep the original patina. We try and photograph all of the pieces next to a ruler so you can see the actual size. All jewelry sold as found.
We use the descriptions of any stones from the manufacturers titles when they were first produced. When we refer to the stones as moonstone or jade or garnet, for example, we are using how the original manufacturer of the pieces used them. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of a stone in a costume piece of jewelry. All pieces have been worn at least one time unless otherwise specified. Although the pieces we carry are unique and interesting they may have a little wear ( if any) but they sure have a lot of love that came with them when they were first purchased way back when.
Just click on our photos for more close ups to help you see all the cool detail on each piece.
I will be happy to combine shipping if you purchase from both.
DO WE ENGRAVE?: We Do not offer engraving services of any sorts as we are not equipped to do so I’m sure your local jeweler would be happy to do so, sorry for any inconvenience thank you.
