    My third find for today is this large carved cinnabar ring. I'm fairly sure all these rings came from the same owner. They all have the same faint smell of Taboo or some such perfume. This one appears to be older possibly even Victorian. The band has a worn gold finish with a dull grey metal under that. There's a repair to this one as well, showing a bit of solder on the inside of the band. Not a bad day at all in the jewelry department. -Mike-

      Lovely carving on the Cinnabar, and a nice chunky ring.

      Not a bad day at all! This is a lovely carved piece.
      My favorite is the silver/sapphire/ maybe diamonds ring.

      Thanks Efesgirl and Elisabethan :).... I have to say I like this ring too Karen but for different reasons. Just too hard to choose so I bought them all...lol.

      When there's no pottery or glass, you can't go wrong with jewelry and doesn't require a big box to store it. This ring is beautiful!

      You are so right Ken ! :)

      Mike I don't know how I missed this. Very nice!
    15. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      Not sure if this is real or not Val, but it sure makes a statement. Isn't cinnabar suppose to be poisonous so it's banned from export ?? Read that somewhere. Definitely not a ring pop...lol
    16. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 5 years ago
      I'm loving this again :)
    17. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      Thanks Elisabethan for the "double love" :)
    18. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 5 years ago
      You're welcome, it's really nice.

      I've been told true cinnabar is so sought after that I shouldn't worry about any health hazard because I can't afford it. Kidding - it was a toxic mix of mercury and sulfur. I doubt it would hurt us now. Cinnabar is now made from resins which can be harmful too.
