This pretty ring has 3 bright and well matched yellow chrysolites set in a shamrock design with small garnet accents. The head of the ring has a beautiful beadwork outer border and is set within scrolled foliate design shouldersonto an engraved shank. At some point this ring has been sized up considerably and the back section is plain. As such this lovely ring can be sized with limitations.  The ring is in beautiful condition.

 

Chrysolite is a term long referred to for the yellow variety of olivine (peridot).
