One of many in the 1950's to 1960's era of men's jewelry I have. For quite a few years I bought 10 & 14k & 18k rings of all shapes and sizes. Everyone knew that if they had a ring to sell, Kerry would buy it. So I was actually a "one man pawnshop" for several years back in the day. I'm really glad I was on a tear doing this for quite some time. Maybe it will pay off in the future. When I would buy a ring with a certain type stone, this one being an emerald, I would then seek out other stones in rings of "like kind". At one point I had 4 rings very similar to this one. Just a gold ring with a big square or rectangle green stone embedded. Then starting about a year ago I listed a couple hundred rings in my store on eBay. What I found was that men were buying these larger than normal rings with large stones more than any other type ring. And of those, the green emeralds were the most popular. This is my last one like it and one I may keep because of that fact.
***Update: Thanks to Dottie I have found out that the cut on this stone is called a "cushion cut". Thanks Dottie.
