Gem-set ring with a central rose-cut gemstone. The central stone may be a spinel or foil-backed clear crystal. The underside of the bezel is closed. Each shoulder is flanked by three bezel-set “gems” that appear to be red glass. The bezels for these “gems” are mounted on the top of bifurcating shoulders. At the bottom of the shoulder is an openwork design. The shank has carved decoration.
