Story

The harmony of a sparkling gem and precious metal brings forth a canorous ode to the Muses of Ancient Greece, those Queens of Song whose spirits guided and inspired the designer who created this late 19th century ring.

As a temple dedicated to the Muses, a mount of 18k yellow gold, formed from a cluster of bass clefs encircles the podium of the maestro conductor which is set with an old European cut diamond of an estimated .54 carats (J color; SI1 clarity). Shoulders in the shape of the golden lyres of Clio are set upon the double banded plinths of a smooth column that wraps around the finger of a hand as a symphony of a visual delight plays softly in the background.
