Here is a wonderful vintage ring that has two very unique and beautiful features that will always make it stand out and be admired.
Made in 9 carat gold in London in 1967, this ring is set with a gorgeous smoky quartz that has such a rich brown colour to it. Measuring 9.50 carats in weight, it is called a buff-top cut, meaning that it has a smooth cabachon-like top with a facetted pavilion. This combination of smooth top and facetted base gives it such a wonderful look especially when viewing it from the top, and then its second wonderful feature can be seen from the side.
With a lovely heart design on both sides, this really makes it so much more unique as well as romantic.
The top of the ring measures 18mm by 13.5mm across, and looks and sits perfectly on the finger where it will no doubt always be loved and admired.

What is smoky quartz?
Like the name implies, smoky quartz is from the quartz family, that is a smoky-brown colour. This family also includes citrine (yellow) and the most famous, amethyst (purple). Smoky quartz should never be called smoky topaz, as topaz is another gemmological family of gemstones.
