Description

This colorful jewelry pays tribute to a rare gold ring in the Greek and Roman Study Collection at The Met. Produced in Cyprus in the 6th century B.C., this precious ring displays impressive aspects of the ancient goldsmith's art. The ring bears two of its three original insets: a piece of sard (quartz) and a "stone" of glass paste, which would have presented a pleasing color contrast with the third element. Our hoops reimagine this ancient adornment with gray aventurine, carnelian, and lapis stones.
