Hello everyone,
Again I'd like to thank as always your advice and knowledge.
I found this ring, and I love him. I feel it is special and despite having searched references, has not been able to find much info. Just because of their size it was a male ring
The ring is mounted in 22K gold, the central cabochon seems to me a green berryllium more than an emerald, and it has an interestingly fluoresce; it is surrounded by cabochon rubies and also covered with seed pearls. All the stones that make up the ring looks rounded.
Thanks!

I would call this a coctail ring. Dating is tricky, style is American 1950's, but I get the feeling that it might be much more recent. The choice of stones and their color match up point towards recent India production. Is there no markings? History before purchase?

Thank you Alberto! I've not been in the gem business for the last few years, focusing on antiques instead, but I might get back into it, it's addictive as nothing else... :roll:

Sorry Jung Kee for the delay in answer you, thanks for your comments. It is true that has some semblance to a cocktail ring. The funny thing is that it is a ring for man. The size is 70.
I attached more pictures of detail, as well as one where you can see some marks, hope this would help.
The ring is mounted in gold 22 kts, the center stone is 12 carats emerald surrounded by rubies and pearls.
I buy it in Southeast Asia five years ago together with some other Antique Indian pieces. Some of them tested and certified (all original).
Thanks!!!
