When I turned 30 I decided to treat myself to a gold ring - but I didn't find the right one until I was 35 at an antique mall in El Cajon, CA. The stone is probably onyx? faceted - approximately .75"x.5" It's size 6.5 - and large enough that the setting sits across finger. I prefer large settings - guess I'm not very dainty. I think this is from the 50's - and is marked 14k inside. In the 1940's beautiful swirls and bows in the roccoco style were popular - and that style continues. It also looks Victorian but the marks inside look too new (and so tiny I can't make it out. Where's my loupe???) If anyone has more info - please post.
I can't remember what my 40th present was. Might have been my fab computer, etc. Surely I bought a piece of bling too!
