This piece features three turquoise bead cabochons (round on all sides) with a bright blue green color in a very uniform shade. The beads are each about 4mm in diameter.This ring has elaborate gold work with a variation on an "eye" east west shape and a tiered setting to the stones you can see this in profile. Its a hefty piece at 4.9 grams, marked and tested for 14K. Currently a size 6, this can easily be resized.
