From the ancient lands of Turkey ands its surrounds comes a traditional type of ring. Referred to as a harem ring, it is typically composed of a multiple number of gem set bands attached at the back. Supposedly the number and type of gems reflected rank within the harem.
Five separate bands of 14k yellow gold are fitted together and secured at the back using a gold keeper. Quite striking, each band is set with a row of precious gems. This particular piece captures the form of a seven stone ring.
A series of seven sapphires, total weight .42 carats is followed by seven emeralds and then with seven cultured half pearls of 2.5 mm in diameter. Next in line are seven gems of turquoise with a variety of coloration and finally seven rubies, total weight of .42 carats finishes the array.
All gems, as are the pearls, are approximately 2.5 mm in diameter and set with four gold prongs.
