Story

Jewelry forms are transmutable if the design and style are initially worthy. Here we see how a 14k yellow gold brooch from the Victorian period has been transformed into a smashingly bold ring. Dramatic archaeological revival style carries its own weight with intricate wire work, twisted rope design and granulation.

The circular face is tiered and crowned with a dome set pavé with natural turquoise en cabochon and framed with a gold perimeter and a thick rope of twisted gold wire. Around the outer tier ten (10) turquoise cabochons in gold collets dot the entire surface as golden orbs and surface decoration create magical forms. The later date 14k yellow gold shank sports scrolled shoulders akin to Ionic columns accented with glass cabochons made to resemble turquoise. In addition, the shank is embellished with a stripe of matching blue enamel work.

Date: Circa 1870 for the top; shank is modern.
