10K YG Vintage Ring Setting, Make Over
This ring setting, is a vintage 10K YG setting, approximately 50 yrs old. I acquired this because it had two Citrine, and two round Diamonds in it. The owner asked me to remove those stones, and make two pairs of earrings. One for her, and the Diamonds were to be put away for her grandaughter. She gave me the setting, after the stones were removed, as payment for my work. I placed a Peridot, and a cherry Red Garnet in the setting. Peridot is my birthstone, and the Garnet represents my husband and son, who are Rubies. My daughter is an Emerald, so the green has symbolism for her as well. The two round stones, are Pink Tourmalines. This ring is a little big for me, but it looks quite good, on the finger pictured. It is very dirty, and needs to be cleaned, but what a lovely end piece.
