Old gold gemstone ring, hallmark on outside?
by: Anonymous

I have acquired a ring , it is I think gold, the hallmark is worn but it's visible slightly, the hallmark is on the outside of the back. It's gemstone is a purple blue pink red sometimes lilac. It's a large oblong shape cut, the setting is claws, one claw has broken and the stone moves slightly. I absolutely love the ring although it's bigger and gaudier than I normally like, I just love it. I want to get it cleaned and repaired but if it isn't real I'll just keep it as it is. And help would be appreciated.

Good Morning

Malachite is used in jewelry when carved or cut en cabochon, it is recognized by alternating bands of light and dark green, and when the bands form concentric pattern it is known as "malachite peacock's eye" -

a more symmetrical style lyre shaped musical instrument than the Irish crowned harp was used by - Worden-Munnis Co., Inc, (Silver & Goldsmiths, mostly on reproductions, Boston, MA, USA) ca. 1940 - 1964.
