Weighs approximately 25.2 grams. Designed for a finger approximately little over 22 mm in diameter, Approximately US ring size 12 3/4, British size Z 1/2, the largest I have eVer seen! As clearly illustrated in the images, the scales are intact, this ring was well loved and taking care of, naturally due to its importance. I took some photos showing the dragons swirling and playing in my clover patch for your entertainment= On careful close examination one will notice that even one of the dragons arms hand sand talons have been included, as well as the bristles proceeding it, and one also clearly sees curving flames, now how cool is that! The port city of Tientsin was opened by treaty agreement with France and England in 1860, becoming the most important city for trade and tourism in China.This authentic original dragons ring became So popular and famous that copies aka fakes are being created to this very day, some copies are relatively contemporary or earlier done within the same decade as this very original and can fetch a good price, but beware not to confuse those with the ones created today that are not worth a penny more than its gold weight. If you love Dragons then this is the peak of rings in authenticity and historical museum quality which you will eVer find! The natural ruby is an faceted oval transparent light pink with some cool precious stone inclusions, while the Colombian emerald is an oval cabochon.
One dragon has faceted ruby eyes with the cabochon Colombian emerald held in place by its tung sprungs, while the second dragon has cabochon emerald eyes with the faceted oval ruby held on place by its tung springs. The two main stones wiggle a bit, with intent to represent freedom. Rubies symbolize passion and love while emeralds symbolize health, fertility and natural wealth, thus together wishing the wearer much good fortune! In Imperial China only the Imperial family were allowed to wear dragons and the yellow color, so this ring would make an imperial quality gift!The real Lord of the Rings! The two dragons also represent the Ying Yang, so grab these beauties while you Can! Feel free to check out my other Museum Quality Collection! Love Dragons & God Bless.
