Dome of Desire - Turquoise Pearl Ring
The fashion of today can be big, showy and dramatic. In homage to the jewelers of yesteryear and today, redesigning a piece of jewelry is most definitely an aspect of the history of jewelry. Here we see an excellent example employing a delightful Victorian brooch of 14k yellow gold in the creation of a marvelous ring for the finger.
The height of a high dome or bombé configuration is emphasized even more using a pavé of natural turquoise cut en cabochon. A flowerhead cluster of seven (7) half natural seed pearls (untested but guaranteed to be natural) accents the apex of the dome with a distinctive and striking contrast of white in counterpoint with the luscious blue turquoise.
A scalloped border of turquoise cabochons set in modified pinched collets rim the perimeter of the matrix providing visual interest and a symmetry of form. A modern 14k yellow gold shank has been added to complete the transformation.
Date: Circa 1870 for the top; shank is modern.
Measurements: 1-1/4 of an inch (3.2 cm) in length north to south on the hand and rises 5/8 of an inch (1.4 cm) in height off the finger. Weight of 20.7 grams (13.3 dwt).
Ring Size: US 7-1/2 (UK O-1/2; Euro or Int. Circum. 55.7 mm; Int. Dia. 17.7 mm; Japan 15) and easily can be sized to fit most. Ring sizing information.
Condition: Very good; brooch has been converted to a ring; shank is modern.
Origin: Shank is American.
