Notable Features : This gorgeous sterling silver ring was completely handmade in China during the Art Deco era. Expandable design for a natural and comfortable fit on the finger. The face of the ring is a squared shield-shaped sheet of sterling silver that features a raised relief scene depicting a captured moment of life in China. The border of the shield is framed with an etched double line that follows along with the shield as it tapers down to the arms of the band. A border between the edge of the ring and the image at the center. The scene shows two stylized figures sitting at a table, who appear to be playing a board game.
The figures are sitting in a cozy tea room or sitting room, with arching details that act as lanterns. Each little lantern has a sunburst design to mimic the light that would shine from them. There is a patina forming on the sterling silver, giving this piece a lovely antique look, adding contrast to the recessed areas of the ring against the brighter silver of the raised relief figures.
This ring comfortably covers the first joint of the finger, and is wonderfully unisex. This expandable ring can be worn by anyone, and would make a wonderful gift.
