    I think this is very old. Looks like Jade to me. Scrolled design on the metal....Filigree. Maybe Arts & Crafts period? Does have a repair inside on the metal but you can still clearly see it says SILVER on one side inside, and CHINA on the other side inside. Have Never cleaned as left original Patina on it. It has been worn and loved over the year

    Any other info is Greatly appreciated....Age, real Jade, Antique

    This was in a bag of Jewelry I bought at a Sale for a fiver....LOL

      Gorgeous Rose. Yeah that one on Ebay looks similar, might give you something to work with!
      Do you wear it? I would!
    3. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Your ring is Chinese Export from the Deco period. Its called Silver Filigree and sometimes comes with adjustable band...very nice....highly collectable.
      The EBay ring is a cheap Balinese ring...newer

      @Moonstonelover21 - Thanks so much for your info. Yes it has an adjustable band (old school type). Is this stone Real Jade then? Is there a certain name for it the Jade as I know nothing about Jade. This would have more Value to it than the link I provided of the (newer) sample??? I did find some like it a while ago like it. It went in the 4 figure range $ xxxx.xx (put a 2 at the start....lol). I got this in a bag of jewelry at a Garage Sale a couple years -- and been *trying* to research since that time -- as I do not know much about it, but it caught my eye!! Thanks again, Please keep me informed!! Anything you know about it has my ear turned on as hard to research something you do not know much about.

      Chinese export piece, 1920's-40's. Looks like it may be a type of glass instead of jadeite in the first photo
    7. kyratango kyratango, 8 years ago
      Agree totally with Moonstonelover, and nearly with Stillwater, because it is not glass but jadeite. It has the "orange peel" effect on the surface.
      pictures of jadeite are very difficult, the color is so living! Hard to catch, can seem more bluish ore more yellowish.
      I would cherish this one too!!!

      This is what Moon posted. I went through the link, to look at the "cheap Balinese ring on eBay" out of curiosity. It is listed as an antique Chinese ring. And sold for $149. Did someone get snookered? Apparently they didn't think so, as they posted the following transaction:

      "Great international teansaction. Thanks"

      I note that this thread and that link were posted 11 months ago, but the ring just sold in January 2015. Different ring, same listing?
    10. antiquerose antiquerose, 7 years ago
      @katherine - was trying to figure my ring out a bit more. That's all. I do not know the variations since the stone was pitted. Due to age? Or that kind of Stone? I bought this a few years ago at a Garage Sale. They had a bag of Jewelry for $ 5 bucks, and this was in it
    11. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      Definitely worth grabing the bag :-)
      On the Ebay listing, the stone may rather be an aventurine than a jadeite.
      Yours is way better!
      interesting link about jadeite:

      With regards to the

      ~ Somewhat Nice.
      ~ Just Awesome..
      ~ A keeper...
      ~ Highly Collectible....

      Chinese exported a lot of jewelry to the rest of the world and there is a lot floating around. They are buying some of it back, some types of items are in trend, some are not, and they fluctuate a bit within a year. You can search the completed listings on eBay to see if this kind of stuff is valuable. I can say that it has value, but not *tremendous* value. Jade is a classic stone, everyone loves it.

      @antiquerose, as with everything on here, I'm no expert, just trying to learn what I can from reading the threads, going through to read the links, following what the different experts say. It's all a learning journey for me.
