Vintage Dragon Gargoyle Ring

It looks like a gargoyle dragon to me. I like the face. The body is harder to figure out. I’d use it for an ASCII art dragon but I’d have to put my own spin on it to get the details for everything but the head itself. vintage-antique-jewelry.com

vintage-antique-jewelry.comvintage-antique-jewelry.comRing probably made for a man, but a woman can also wear it. Very strong Antique vintage ring for man or woman. 14k yellow gold, cabochon chrysoprase. Made in China circa 1920-40.

Chinese design. The entire ring is moulded as a dragon on one side that metamorphosizes into a snake on the other side. The heads are on either side of the bezel, which contains a colette-set cabochon chrysoprase, looking like jade and is a deep green color. The dragon and snake are modelled in high relief with marvellous detail such as the bulgy temple-god eyes of the dragon and the tongues of both snake and dragon. Curling tendrils and flaring fire from the mouth of both of these animals. The legs seem to crawl and creep around the shank of the ring and to hold the gem, which is like a huge egg. The shank formed partly by the bodies of the animals.

Claddagh Ring by Ricksonjewellery

I like this update on the Claddagh design. I wanted to make a Claddagh with ASCII art and may use the hands in this way. Much easier than showing all the fingers (hard to get narrow lines that close together unless I make the Claddagh in a pretty large size). I found a crown on another Claddagh which I like too, a vintage ring I posted to Pinterest.

Canada Coats of Arms Emblems Tea Cup

Vintage (1960’s) Canadiana teacup and saucer. I am so very tempted to buy this set. But, it’s a bit pricey to consider with shipping and then… I’d feel awful if it came damaged during delivery. I think that bothers me more than spending the money on it. Yet…. I haven’t closed the page from Etsy.
