Vibrant, attention grabbing, Afghani ring with yellow stone
A fabulous ring, set with a mesmerizing yellow stone, comes from across the mountains of Afghanistan. Full of vibrant colour and light, this juicy ring is a cheerful example of tribal Kuchi design. The perfect foil for your summer whites, the large yellow stone in the centre is flanked by tiny fuchsia pink and deep green stones on either side. It had an embossed pattern all around the shank/band but that has rubbed off with long years of usage. Isn't this just what we love about old jewelry- that well-worn patina?

Please note: (1) All the jewelry in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewelry.
(2) All the jewelry has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewelry is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewelry is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
