18 K HGE (Heavy Gold Electroplate)
Dozens of CZs
This fabulous cocktail ring came from a collection of over 400 pieces of high quality costume jewelry that I recently purchased at an estate sale. I did see the original paperwork where it was purchased from QVC for $89. I failed to make note of the purchase date.
The top and about half way down each side is loaded with round CZ stones. It is stamped inside 18K HGE. HGE stands for Heavy Gold Electroplate. According to the online dictionary, HGE is normally 925 silver inside with a thick coating of 18K.
Size: Using a set of calipers and then comparing the size against a template, Im fairly confident that it is a size 8 ring. Im not 100% positive, but I believe thats right.
CONDITION: The stones put out a blazing shine. All stones are present and I see no chips or cracks. Only by using a jewelers loop to check the stones, I can see where on the top, a very small area in the lower part of the gold has worn thin and a little silver is showing. The ring is about 30 plus years old, so I would think that is normal wear. I don't know if you can see the area in my main photo because its right where the reflection was picked up. Also, there are faint scratches, nothing bad, just the kind jewelry gets from clanking against other pieces in a jewelry box.
Buyer to pay USPS 1st Class Parcel shipping charges of $3.99.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can safely fit into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
