Heaven On Earth - Art Deco 10K Turquoise Filigree Ring (ADR090)
Heaven On Earth - Art Deco 10K Turquoise Filigree Ring. This gorgeous ring is crafted from 10k white gold, hallmarked 10k inside the shank. Featuring a genuine Persian turquoise, exquisite detail and gold-work. The expertly claw set turquoise has a beautiful sky blue colour, surrounded by a sea of filigree work surrounding the entire gallery. The filigree work displays orange blossoms, foliage and scrolls. The decoration also includes fine milgrain detail and engraving on the knife edge shoulders, leading down to a smooth polished band for comfort. This Art Deco piece looks stunning when worn, truly an heirloom piece to be treasured and enjoyed for many years to come.
Note: The orange blossom has stood for purity, chastity, and innocence dating back to Ancient China. In China an emblem of the orange blossom was placed on the gowns of young brides to represent these virtues. This tradition moved westward into India and up to Persia which is present day Iran. The orange blossom detail was often used in Edwardian and Art Deco engagement rings. The detail on this particular piece is absolutely breathtaking.
