An oval of the given size should be around 2 carats according to charts on line. There is a clear "CT" along with a small portion of a numeral, the rest struck off the the shank. That said it is at least 9K and tests strongly at 10K (a 9CT stand alone marking was and is commonly employed by Australian and Canadian jewelers for instance). Some say a blue spinel can ward off tension and worry, providing a clear state of mind. Whatever your belief this finger ornament has two prime requisites for notice - a distinctive visual presence and a clear separation from any of that stuff at the mall.
Weight is good for the form at about 3.4 grams on my portable digital scale. Condition is quite good though not absolutely pristine perfect, with an aura of time to the gold surfaces.The spinel shows some typical antique wear at the facet edges - this is mainly mentioned for accuracy, as it is not overly burdened in that regard. The shank retains plenty of "meat"along with faint evidence of a subsequent very well accomplished sizing. I'm nitpicking to be thorough, and a look at the pics should give a good idea of appearance and condition. Ring size measures about 10 on my jeweler's ring mandrel (the bottom edge of the shank reaches that line on the mandrel) - this is assuredly no pinky ring. Vertical at the front, so yes it will be noticed. If you have need and prefer antique for the history and road less travelled, this will have great meaning for you.
