1960s Chatham Rough Emerald and Diamond Ring



Organic rough emerald and diamond ring. The 18k 1"L x 1"W x 7/8"H textured yellow gold ring encasing approximately 50cts of massive emerald crystal enhanced with approximately .50cts of brilliant-cut white diamonds. This chunky statement ring is designed in the manner of Arthur King. Although we believe it to be by another hand, this brutalist organic style made popular by King in the 60's and 70's became a style associated with the young jet-set. Interesting ,one of a kind jewelry basically stated the the wearer "Had Arrived" . The confidence of being unique displayed on the finger. This ring does take some confidence. Its Bold , freeform design and scale do not go unnoticed! Chatham emeralds , developed by Carroll Chatham in the late 1950's, were lab grown in the exact same manner as the naturally occurring stone. Originally cut and polished, the roughs soon became the darling of studio and artist- jewelers everywhere. The bright color and unusual play of light attracted not only the jewelers but the buyers. The bonus.. no two are ever alike! One of a kind. Size 5.5
