This is a truly hand-hammered Sterling silver unisex gents ring in a handsome solitaire style # 509 in my online catalog. This masculine design features ajoure work to create a look of teeth and claws all around the stone and four that act as prongs to secure the stone as well. The removed silver leaves the gem in full view. Ajoure is the art of cutting away to create an image rather than filigree which is generally wire that has been added and soldered into an opening. Ajoure art stays brighter as there is no solder involved thus creating a better heirloom. The back is open and the gem sits in a basket nestled into the ajoure work. The band is built heavy and tapers down towards the back for added comfort. This gem is a pinkish Purple Spinel from Mogok, an attractive 6.1 x 5.7 x 3.9 mm hand faceted oval that weighs 1.14 carat and is of slightly included clarity. This naturally mined gem has had no treatment, no heat or filler. The weight of this handcrafted ring is about 5.4 grams. This ring size is an 8½ in the USA, inside diameter of 0.73 inches or 18.54mm, the inside circumference is 2.29 inches or 58.3mm, in the United Kingdom, Ireland Australia and New Zealand it is a size Q½, in India, China and Japan it is a size 17, and in Switzerland it is a size 18.7.
