General Information:

  • US Size: This ring sits between a 6.25 and 6.50 on the shop mandrel. Because this ring is in the open-shank/torque style, it may be able to be *carefully* opened further to create a larger size (best performed by a professional), OR resized.
  • Precious Metal Weight: 1.63 dwt
  • Precious Metal Material: 14k white gold
  • Dimensions: The face of the ring measures 4.05-4.08 mm north to south (width) at the widest points of the claw open ends. The back half of the shank measures about 3.18 mm north to south. The band's depth/rise from the finger is about 1.18 mm. As it is at the time of listing, the opening peek-a-boo of skin between the two points of the claw ends is about 1.95-2.00 mm.
  • Weight: A very nice weight of 2.54 grams
  • Markings: T he interior of the band is marked 14K, and likewise tests for 14 karat white gold.
  • Era:  This band is believed to date from between the 1970s and the 2000s. Without knowing an exact provenance, we cannot date it more specifically than this window of time.
  • Buyer Notes: The claw ends show a very, very subtle reverse-taper (also called entasis) so that their silhouettes are ever so slightly more rounded and then taper toward a straight band at the base of the shank. The claw ends also have a very subtle knife-edge effect, but this is not a crisp ridge, rather, a smoothed detail. Please see the photographs to best ascertain these characteristics.

    The Story:

    This band is a minimalist's dream, and is a more recent vintage piece. Fabricated in high-polish white gold, this band makes an excellent lone staple just as much as it complements a number of other rings of nearly any style and age. Its open shank design gives it an edgy appearance while also offering a practical and modern interpretation of a contoured silhouette, so as to beautifully hug around the curves and angles of an engagement or statement ring if so desired. The two endpoints of the ring are, themselves, pointed claw prongs and are emphasized by chic knife-edge detailing that tapers around the base of the shank. These understated characteristics take this simplified band to the next level.

    Bands such as these are surprisingly scarce on the market, with no exact vintage comparables for sale at the time of listing. This style makes for a super special, mod statement ring when worn solo and also stacks very well adding a touch of interest to any collection of stacking bands. It also makes for an ideal wedding band, anniversary band or enhancer band when paired with antique Edwardian or Art Deco filigree/openwork engagement rings. For example, this band is an excellent addition to a hexagonal Deco engagement ring, with the point of the hexagon shaped mount cupped within the area where the claw ends meet. 

    By placing an order, you accept and agree to uphold Revival Fine Jewelry's terms, conditions and policies.

    Regarding All Purchases: All additional 'prop' jewelry boxes, ring boxes, or any other jewelry items pictured alongside the featured listing are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless explicitly noted in the listing description and/or title. Your order will be carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box and will ship in a discreet outer shipping parcel.

    Regarding Sale Purchases: Items purchased while on sale and/or sold at specially discounted rates negotiated and agreed upon by Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated consumer are considered final sale. Sale and discounted items are nonreturnable, nonrefundable and ineligible for layaway.

    Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

    Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

    Layaway is available for full priced, non-sale items priced $600.00 USD or greater, and items may not be combined to attain price-eligibility. Plans are offered as 3-month/90-day maximum terms.

    In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

    • A 30% non-refundable deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

    • The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

     In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

    Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer. Revival Fine Jewelry is not responsible for calculating, covering or adding such costs into purchase prices.

    All layaway payments as well as all items purchased through layaway plans are considered final sale; neither payments nor items may be refunded, transferred, exchanged or returned. Revival Fine Jewelry does not issue store credit.

    Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to cancel any layaway plan at any point for any reason if fraudulant activity is suspected. In this event, the designated customer will be notified prior to the intended cancellation of their plan.
